RELAND, Adrien. [Japan with Sino-Japanese script]
Le Japon Divisé en Soissante Et Six Provinces, cette carte est tireé des cartes des Japonois... Amsterdam: Jean Frédéric Bernard, 1715. Coloured. 310 x 455mm. Trimmed to printed border lower right as usual, remargined.
An important map, published in the First Edition of Bernard's 'Recueil de Voiages Au Nord'. Reland ignored previous European maps, instead relying on a Japanese model, with the result that many of the fictitious places disappear. All sixty-six provinces are named in Roman and Sino-Japanese characters (the first Western map to do so). The map has an inset of Nagasaki and armorials of the Emperor and his shoguns. This influential map was later copied by Ottens, Chatelain and Seutter. HUBBARD: 69.
[Ref: 19038]    £1,500.00 ($1,818 • €1,637 rates)
