Product Description

Antique Map of Asia by Quad titled ‘ASIA/PARTIV OR/BIS MAXIMA/MDXCVIII’.¬†Scarce late 16th century old colour German map of Asia by Matthed (Matthias) Quad (1557 – 1613) a Dutch geographer, humanist and engraver, who studied in Heidelberg and settled in Cologne before 1587 and returned to Cologne in 1600. Matthias Quad was the most prolific member of the ‚ÄúCologne School of Cartography‚ÄĚ, a renaissance of Dutch mapmaking which began in 1570 when large numbers of Dutch geographers and engravers came to Cologne seeking refuge from religious and political persecution. Dated 1598 and published by Johann Bussemachaer (fl. 1580 ‚Äď 1613) cartographer, engraver and printer of Cologne in the third edtion of Quad’s Atlas Geographische. The map is an interesting mix of good and bad cartographic information of the time. There is no Korean Peninsula and Japan is odd shaped, as are most of the islands of southeast Asia. The Caspian Sea is mis-orientated and Lake Chiama is postulated as the source of southeast asia rivers. Many cities are shown including Sincapura and Jakarta as ‚ÄúSundacalapa‚ÄĚ.
