A large and decorative map of Asia, surrounded by a border containing the arms of Asian countries (including Cyprus), with the left and bottom borders dedicated to the Emperor of Japan and his nobles.

Danet was the son-in-law and successor of De Fer, and republished many of his maps, but this item is apparently a new work, one of series of World and Continents originally published 1729-32.

 Far East 

DE JODE, Gerard. [16th century map of the Far East]
Tertiae partis Asiae quæ modernis Indi orientalis dicitur acurata delineatio. Autore Iacobo Castaldo Pedmontano. Gerardus de Iode excudebat. Antwerp, 1593, Latin text edition. 325 x 495mm.
The Far East, with India, the Malay Peninsula (with 'Cingatola'), the Philippines & Moluccas, engraved c.1566, this example from the 1593 edition of De Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrae', published two years after his death by his widow and son. This was to be the last edition: after the death of Cornelis De Jode in 1600 the plates were bought by Vrients, then the owner of the Ortelius plates, merely to stop their re-issue. Some of the most famous names in cartography of this period appear on this map: De Jode was the great rival of Ortelius, with whom he had a long-running feud; Gastaldi, De Jode's source, is best known for the appearance of his maps in the 'Lafreri-type' atlases; and Lucas & Jan van Doeticum, the engravers, are renowned for the flair of their work for Waghenaer, Linschoten and Ortelius. KOEMAN: Jod 2.

It shows from Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula east to New Guinea, and north to Indochina, the Philippines and the Mariana Islands. In 1621 the printing plate was sold to a London publisher, who republished it in 'Purchas His Pilgrimies'. Later Dutch editions used new plates by Jansson.
