¤ From 1633 the members of the Blaeu family were official cartographers to the United East India Company and, as such, had access to the most up-to-date cartographic information concerning this area. Indeed, Dutch explorers and merchants returning from the East with new information were obliged to turn their maps and charts over to the Blaeu workshop so that alterations could be made or new plates engraved.
However, this map contains many errors, showing how old plates continued to be used long after the information on them had proved to be wrong. With columns of figures on either side depicting the native manners of dress, and nine city plans and views at the top.
Japan is shown accurately unusually with Korea as an enlonged island.

¤ Attractive large-scale map of Asia. This map is based extensively on Sanson, but prepared and published by Hubert Jaillot. The confusion concerning the area north to Japan is quite evident in this depiction of the region following closely Sanson's contour of 1692.
Korea here called "R. DE TIOCENCOUK ats CAOLI ou COREE". Only the place names "Sio" (Seoul), Chentio" Ping gan" and "Cosio" are mentioned, in the sea the island "Sagsiang". - Not in Sweet, mapping of the continent of Asia.

¤ Delightful little map of Asia that conforms to the standard French model of the period. Hokkaido is attached to the mainland and Terre de Iesso is off the coast partially obscured by the title cartouche.
The map does not follow any particular cartographer and Chiquet has made a concerted effort not to represent theoretical cartography. A note along the northeastern coastline translates "this coast and its outline have never been well known."
From Le Nouveau et Curieux Atlas Geographique et Historique.. by Jacques Chiquet.
Mounted on an engraved French text sheet entitled Description Abregé de l'Asie.

¤ The cartouches are painted in strong and a somewhat impressionistic way. Varnish is used for the dark shadow areas to highlight the colours. Clearly from an show-piece atlas produced for a wealthy merchant or nobleman, in so-called "Fürsten kolorit". Maps published in Germany during the 18th century are usually in body colours, with uncoloured cartouches. Rare in this condition and colours. Prepared by Johann Matthias Haas (1684-1742) who produced a number of continental and regional maps for Homann Heirs in the middle years of the 18th century. The coastal waters of Japan remain a little haphazard with Hokkaido -Terra Efo, Yedso ou Yesfo- still attached to the mainland. Tibet, which is named, dears the alternative title of "Dalai Lammae". The splendid title cartouche features a seated female courtesan, with a smoking incense burner on her lap; to the right an Amazon plucks an arrow from her quiver, while some sort of saurian lurks in the background. This edition with extra "Avec Priv" added to title across the top border. - Sweet, Asia 131.

¤ An attractive map of Asia. With a decorative title cartouche in the upper left-hand corner. Engraved by A.Amons. Franz Johann Josef von Reilly (Vienna 18 august 1766 - 6 july1820) was active as geographer, journalist, book and art dealer. In 1792 he created his "geographical Komptoir" and was extremely prolific, producing no less than 830 maps. In 1796 he published his large "Deutscher Atlas" which was the first world atlas produced by an Austrian. His "Allgemeiner Post atlas" (1799) was the first post route atlas at all. As a writer von Reilly became particularly famous by his "Sinngedichte" and his poetic work "Noradin" (1813), which falsely is often attributed to J. J. Polt. In this map the Bering Straits are named Cooks Strasse, marking Cook's third voyage (1776-1780). Further south, the Aleutian chain is clearly recognizable, but the size of its constituent island is greatly exaggerated. In the north-west, Novaya Zemlya is correctly represented as two islands. - Sweet, Mapping the continent of Asia, 213.
