click here to view a large version in a separate window

An early, decorative map of the area originally called Tartary, encompassing all of Siberia and northern Asiatic Russia, Central Asia and including Korea defined as an island. The map was engraved by Jodocus Hondius in his distinctive style with large strap-work cartouches and silk-effect sea shading. The Great Wall of China is indicated and a note in the Arctic Ocean records the voyages of William Barents of 1594 to 1596. Further illustrations include scenes of a Mongol encampment and Tartars Jodocus Hondius continued publication of Gerhard Mercator's "Atlas" project from 1606 when he engraved new, and republished earlier, maps by the great cartographer. The series formed the basis for one of the major atlas projects of the century with maps republished by Jan Jansson and other Dutch publishers over 50 years later. This map is from a French text edition.
