A detailed map of Japan, published in the "Atlas Minor" and showing Korea as a tapering island. The mark of the engraver, Peter Van Den Keere or "Kaerius", appears within the title. A note in Korea describes the inhabitants as warlike, cruel and barbarous. Latin text to verso. Following the success of the expensive folio atlases of Ortelius, Hondius and others,demand grew for less epxpensive, popular versions. In response, Jodocus and later Henricus Hondius and Jan Jansson produced the "Atlas Minor" series of publications from around 1607. The atlases were published in a variety of different languages, here with a slightly larger format in the Jan Cloppenburgh edition. A good decorative example but with an area indistinct engraving around the island of Kyushu.
