Carte Des Isles Du Japon Esquelles Est Remarque La Route ... : J-B.Tavernier

click here to view a large version in a separate window

J-B.Tavernier, from a noted family of booksellers and engravers, left Paris to become a merchant of precious stones, a diplomat and a traveller in the near and far east. This map, based on a variety of sources collected in the East Indies, was published in "Recueil De Plusieurs Relations." The map is almost devoid of detail along its northern side but, and perhaps this is the reason for the large scale, Tavernier has included the details of the route of the Dutch from Nagasaki to Iedo. Of additional interest are the annotations regarding the beautiful girls of 'Ocasaqui' and, reflecting his trade as a merchant of precious stones, that about the silver mines of Jamaisoit. A scarce map with some wear at old folds expertly repaired.
