Asiae Recentissima Delineatio ... : J. B. Homann

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A typically elegant product of 18th century German cartography. A detailed map of the continent, in original wash colour, is decorated with a large and elaborate title cartouche showing a subject paying tribute to a native ruler, numerous other figures, animals and angelic cherubs bearing Jesuit symbols, indicating this map’s purpose. Below the map border is a pasted-on printed label with colour coding relating to the map’s colouration which defines areas of religious influence such as Catholic, Reformist, Muslim and so on. Siberia appears foreshortened, and the unusual depiction of Japan has the mythical Company’s Land to the north. Minor surface stains and lettering just trimmed in lower margin but overall an interesting and decorative map from the major German map publishing house of the Homann family.
