Article description

Article description

Copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash. This detailed map of Japan was published by Joan & Guiljelmus Blaeu in the the famous atlas 'Novus Atlas Sinensis' in Amsterdam 1655. The map is based on the cartographic sources by the missionary Martino Martino, who comes from Trient in South Tirol. M. Martini lived from 1643-509 in China and published afterwards his 'Atlas Sinensis', which was published 1655 for the first by Blaeu as volume VI in their 'Atlas Novus'. However Martini was never himself in Japan his map, one could guess that he received during his stay in China maps of Japan, which he was in his Japan map. Further we recognize the use of Dutch place names for the northeast coast of Honshu. Also showing Korea as a peninsula is one the noteworthy differences compared to earlier maps as Dudley, Janssonius or Ortelius.
