Indiae Orientalis Nova Descriptio : J. Jansson

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A good example of this very attractive map of South East Asia. Boldly engraved, the map has rhumb lines, a decorated mileage scale at lower right and a fine title cartouche supported by native figures. After Mercator's death, Jodocus Hondius continued publication of Gerhard Mercator's "Atlas" project from 1606 when he engraved new, and republished earlier, maps by the great cartographer. These maps formed the basis for one of the major multi-volume atlas projects of the century with maps republished by Jan Jansson and other Dutch publishers over 50 years later. This map, from a French text edition, was engraved by Jan Jansson and published from 1630. Area of lower blank margin repaired but overall, a good map of a very sought-after area.
