¤ The map stretches from the Caspian Sea in the West to Formosa and Japan in the East. Korea rightly correctly depicted as a peninsula. With an over-sized Taiwan. It has been completely reviewed after the model of N.Witsen: the entire coastline from China to Bering Strait has been altered. Yedso and Yupia on this map are part of mainland China.
