A fine example of Jodocus Hondius' classic quarto sized map of China. The map is oriented with north to the right. It shows the eastern part of China, bounded by the Great Wall, dominated by several large lakes and major rivers. Korea is a strangely shaped island, and the three main islands of Japan and the north part of the Philippines are included. Cartographically this map is based on the Ortelius-Teixeira map of 1595.German text on verso. Maps
