ASIAE RECENTISSIMA DELINEATIO..

Code: M3302

Cartographer: Homann

Date: 1712 Nuremberg

Size: 48.5*58.5cms

Attractive and very decorative map of Asia with a particularly interesting depiction of Japan. Hokkaido and Honshu (Terra Yedso) are joined together by a narrow isthmus and separated from the mainland by a wide strait. An accompanying note acknowledges Scherer as the source, although the orientation of Yedso and Companies Land appears to be based on the Delisle model. A huge lake appears in Tibet and is named the legendary Chiamay. A second lake is shown in the position usually occupied by Lake Chiamay, but here it is named L. Cananor Cunabete. In Southeast Asia the straits between New Guinea and Australia appear in a tentative fashion, noting Dampier's Strait and a disembodied Carpentaria with no definite northern limit. This is an early edition with two elaborate cartouches. The lower title cartouche features an Asian queen holding court, the upper cartouche a ceremonial procession.

Uncommon as pre Cum Privigio Homann map.

Good strong impression with equally with excellent full original colour.

Some small nicks in left margin not noticeable.

Excellent condition

Ref: Yeo #109.
