This influential map of the Arctic, including Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland and part of the North American continent, includes also the legendary islands of i.a. Drogeo, Frisland and Icaria. Ortelius' map shows also the influence of the work of earlier authorities: Mercator's 1569 world map, the infamous 1558 Zeno map of the north, Olaus Magnus' map of the northern regions and the Carta Marina of 1539. There is a good outline of the Scandinavian coast, bordering the Mare congelatum, the frozen waters of the Arctic. Aterse note on the nature of the cliffs at Nordkapp is given. - Van den Broecke, Ortelius Atlas maps, 160.

Ortelius' fine map of Asia well represents the continent at a time when Europeans were expanding their power in the Far East. The Indian subcontinent and Malaysian peninsula are easily recognisable. Ceylon and Sumatra are correctly placed, though their shape leaves something to be desired. The Philippines are distorted and Japan is too far north and incorrectly orientated, with the embryonic outline of the three main islands and with the Ryukus and Taiwan appearing as a tail of islands to the south of the archipelago. - Cortazzi, plate 19; OAG, plate 10c.

"...the Far East and the Malay Archipelago are represented in such detail as was known only to the Portuguese at that time and had never before shown on a printed map." (Schilder) The distinctive shape of Japan here is found only on portolanos of the period. The map is also one of the earliest to focus closely on the Philippines. The map is a splendid engraving with decorative details such as several animals in China, two fine compass roses and several whales and ships.

49 PORRO, G./ Unique composit atlas containg in total 84 maps. Pietro Antonio Brigonci, ca. 1686. In mint condition. 84 maps, numbered in brown ink from 1- 84 in a contemporary hand. 275 x 190 mm.

- €
Adjugé pour 19000 €

A unique composit atlas containing in total 84 maps; 82 maps engraved by Girolamo Porro and heavenly reworked around 1686 and 2 newly engraved maps; Piccola Tartaria (Crimea, Ukraine) and Danimarca (Denmark). As the first plate in this book is a birds-eye view of Venise we may conclude that the publisher or buyer was from Venise.
The publisher could have been Pietro Antonio Brigonci. The atlas has no title page and has been published without the descriptive text of the Geographia of Ptolemy and Porcacchi's Isole piu famose del Mondo that usually accompanies these works. The atlas is most likely edited by Pietro Antonio Brigonci who updated the L'Isole plates in 1686. At the same time he could also have aquired the Geographia plates and updated them aswell.

The paper of both series is the same and the maps are numbered in brown ink from 1- 84 in a contemporary hand. The atlas has been rebound in the 1800's and blank pages have been inter-leaved. Few of the manuscript map numberings have been shaved. Book block 275x190mm. All maps are dark impressions and have some usual light marginal spotting. In general very good.
The atlas contains two newly engraved maps; Piccola Tartaria (Crimea, Ukraine) and Danimarca (Denmark).

Part one:
The book opens with a bird's-eye view of Venice and contains 47 maps, actually 30 for the first edition of 1572, adding 15 from the final version of 1576.
Compared to Thomas Porcacchi maps from "L'isole piu famose del mondo descritte da Thoniaso Porcacchi da Castiglione arretino e intagliate da Girolamo Porro padouano con l'aggiunta di molte isole" in this collection the map San Lorenzo (Madagascar) and the two maps added for the first time in the 1590 edition Descrittione dell’Isola d’Elandia, isola de Gotti and Descrittione dell’Istria are not present. Importantly, two maps Piccola Tartaria (Crimea, Ukraine) and Danimarca (Denmark) are added.
The New World is represented by "Temistitan" (Mexico City), "Mondo Nuouo," a reduced version of Forlani's very important map of North America first published in Venice in 1565, which was the first to show America as a single geographic entity, and is the second map to show the Strait of Anian in any detail. The interior of the southwestern portion of the continent and the general outline of the west coast of North America reflect discoveries from Coronado’s expedition of 1540–1542 and Cabrillo’s voyage of 1542–1544 up the west coast perhaps as far as Pont Arena, which he named Cabo de Fortunas.2 Note that Baja California is accurately displayed as a peninsula and existence of a northwest passage is clearly delineated. (Burden 42, second state. Very rare and only know in one copy to the author.)
There are maps of the American islands of "Spagnvola", "Cvba", "Iamaica", "S. Lorenzo", and "S. Giovanni" with five maps. The islands of the Pacific are depicted in "Isole Molucche". Including two world maps.

Part two :
In this collection, there are 36 of the 37 modern maps from Giovanni Andrea Magini - Geographiae universae tum veteris tum nouae absolutissimum opus duobus voluminibus distinctum, in quorum prior habentur CI. Ptolemaei Pelusiensis geographicae enarrationis. Missing is the oversized Mercator world (Shirley 194). Several plates have extensive re-engraving. World, Cyprus, Egypt, Low Countries, etc.

Mentionable the two 'modern' world maps, first "Vniversi orbis descriptio" which is a reduced version of the 1570 Ortelius map, surrounded by six wind heads (Shirley 195). Magini's mariner's map (Shirley 196) follows Gerard Mercator's large world map of 1569, with fanciful addition of chains of mountains across the souther continent.
Beside the world maps, four continental map of Asia, Africa, America and Europe are included, whereas the Africa map showing parts of Brazil and the Asia map also including elements of America. There are three other maps with parts of America: 'Scandia, sive Regiones Septentrionales' showing the north Atlantic with parts of Labrador (Burden 94), 'Tartariae Imperium' with Japan, parts of Canada and California (Burden 95), and finally 'India Orientalis', the attractive map of south -east Asia with the west coast of North America.Including the following maps:

¤ This most uncommon work provides an interesting focus on the dissemination of the outline of Japan provided by Kaempfer. Beside vhe description of Japan, the book includes a description of Philippines, Moluccas, Kochinchina and Canton.
Cordier indicates that the first edition of this work in Italian was in 1738 and the date 1734 on the title page throws the sequence of Tirion's maps into some confusion.
Campbell dates the first Dutch edition of Tirion's maps c.1735.
The bird's-eye view of Deshima is also most interesting, being copied from a manuscript by Vogue, who was second-in-command on Deshima in 1713. The island is viewed from the land-side, depicting the developments of the new warehouses and the garden as well as the famous "speelhuis" which contained a billiard table and musical instruments on the upper floor.

64 ANONYMOUS A Unique Korean Map with notes and district names appearing only in Hangul. Korea, ca. 1790-1800. Original colours. Manuscript on rice paper. The map measures 1030 x 630 mm., height to width. 1030 x 630 mm.

From the late Koryo dynasty to the last years of the Choson dynasty, Korea had a rich cartographic history, producing thousands of beautiful national maps using a wide range of cartographic methods and styles. For their abundant notes and the indication of place-names, the mapmakers used only Classical Chinese (Hanmun). That was the cultural standard of those times.
But sometime during the 18th century, an anonymous and probably self-trained cartographer decided to produce a map on which all the notes and place-names would be written exclusively in Hangul.
As far as this author can determine, the anonymous mapmaker's map of Korea is the only example from the Choson dynasty on which notes and district names appear only in Hangul.
In this article the author examines his style and methods.

The map measures 1030 x 630 mm., height to width. It is of about the same proportions as the much larger and untitled "Naikau map" (1515 x 909 mm) of Korea held by the Japanese governme Cabinet Library (Naikaku Bunko), which is considered the oldest known map in the Chong Ch'ok style, dating to the last quarter of the 15th century or copied from a map of that period.
Unfortunately, the map bears neither title nor date , nor is there any indication of the identity of its maker. But its cartographic type is well known and researched, being of the so - calle Chong Ch’ok style, named after an official of many talents, Chong Ch’ok (1390–1475), who during the 15th century was a favorite of five kings, all of whom promoted geographical research and mpmaking.
The defining feature of maps in this style is the problematic depiction of Korea ’s northern border with north eastern China.
The Korean orthography displayed in the placenames on the map is typical of the 18th century, in general agreement with the evidence of the place-name changes and the physical state of the map. Since the cartographic merits of the map are limited compared to earlier and well-known examples of the Chong Ch’ok genre, which are all in Chinese, the chief and unique feature of this map, that is, its exclusive use of Korean for district names and marginal comments, deserves analysis and comment.
Until the middle of the 15th century, there was no system for writing the spoken Korean language, which is linguistically unrelated to Cinese.
However, as mentioned earlier, classical written Chinese was widely known and used among the educated classes of Korea. It was not a spoken language, even in China itself. There were Korean methods for parsing a written Chinese text using special symbols for grammatical elements in such a way that a subject could be distinguished from an object, or verbal distinctions could be made that would clarify whether a clause was conditional or causative, or a statement, question, or command, etc.

As far as this author can determine, the anonymous mapmaker's map of Korea is the only examplfrom the Choson dynasty on which notes and district names appear only in Hangu.
