A very attractive and rare early 18th century coloured map of Asia by Guillaume De L’Isle (1675-1726), one of the most respected mapmakers of 18th century France. A pupil of Jean Dominique Cassini the supervisor of the triangulation survey of France, and a member of the French Académie Royale des Sciences, Delisle was recognized as ‘the first scientific cartographer’ for his rigorous application of the scientific method to map making and critical approach to the maps of his predecessors. The first edition of this map was published in Delisle’s Atlas de Geographie around 1700. This later state or edition was published possibly around 1702-1705 and differs from the first edition in having detail of the coastline of north-eastern Siberia between Novoya Zemlya and Terre de Yeco.

Very good condition overall; very strong impression on thick paper; measures 455 x 588 mm. ( brown faint haze in middle under part is the shadow of the photographer )

Purchase code: M0166/ALLA ( This map is SOLD, looking for another copy?, please contact us. )
