Product Description

Asia ASIAE TABVLA Frederik de Wit

Accuratiffima totius ASIAE TABVLA Recens Emendata Per FREDERICUM DE WIT Amftelodami.

This is relatively early example of Frederick de Wit’s (1629/30-1706) handsome map of the Asian continent in old colour which appeared in several editions of his Atlas from about 1675 onwards; the engraved number plate ‘4’ appears in the upper right-hand corner of the map. The map is very different to de Wit’s earlier version of the continent, ‘Asia Nova Descriptio’, published 14 years earlier and reflects the increased knowledge of Central Asia and China provided by the work of Father Matteo Ricci and the geography of the East Indian Islands provided by the VOC and the Blaeu family of mapmakers who, for three generations were hydrographers to the VOC.

Good condition apart from a tear along the lower half of the centre-fold that has been repaired with archival tape; measures 488 x 578 mm.

Purchase code: M0952
