Antique map of the Asian continent titled:
‘Accuratiffimatotius ASIAE TABULA RecensEmendata Per I.DANCKERTS Amftelodami’.
A very rare and attractive late 17thy century map of Asia in original colour and near mint condition by the Dutch cartographer Justus Danckerts the elder (1635-1701) published in 1780 in Atlas, Tot Amsterdam by Justus Danckerts in de Calverstraet in de Danckbaerheyt (Koeman, Dan. 1 map 4, Vol. 2, page 91). The Danckerts’ family of Amsterdam was one of the best known print and map sellers in 17th century Amsterdam. Their business activity covered the period from around 1633 when Cornelis Danckerts the elder founded the business, to 1727 when the remaining stocks of maps in the shop of Theodorus Danckerts, his grandson, was sold. The house of Danckerts gained it greatest fame from Justus Danckerts (I. Danckerts), the son of Cornelis and his two sons Theodorus and Cornelis. The majorityof Danckerts’ atlases were published between 1660 – 1720 and are very rare with very few complete copies surviving.
