 Japan 

JANSSON, Jan. [A fine early sea chart of Japan]
Nova et Accurata Iaponiæ, Terræ Esonis, ac Insularum adjacentium. Amsterdam: Schenk & Valk, c.1700. Original colour. 450 x 550mm.
A re-issue of Jansson's chart of Japan of 1658, with body colour rather than the original outline. The map also shows the 'island' of Korea, and the semi-mythical islands of 'Eso' & 'Companies Land', making the contents more myth than reality. It is interesting that this map differs markedly from Blaeu's map of 1655. Blaeu had used the cartography of Martino Martini (with Korea back on the mainland), while Jansson prefered the work of Maerten Gerritsz Vries. Jansson had first used his work in a pocket map in 1648: it was very unusual for a publisher to publish important new cartographical information in small format first. HUBBARD: 30, state ii of ii; WALTER: 57 (for first state).
