Route D'Osacca A Iedo / Route De Nangasacqui A Osacca : A. Montanus

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An unusual and interesting pair of route maps of part of Japan by Arnoldus Montanus. The top map shows the details of the route from Osaka to Jedo (Tokyo). The bottom map shows the details of the route from Nagasaki to Osaka. Both maps are provided with (title) cartouches and a compass rose. An interesting detail is the name 'La Mer de Corée. De Coreer Zee'. The name of this sea is still controversial. The sea is better known as the Sea of Japan. The Sea of Korea is rarely used on maps in the seventeenth century. At most four, five maps use this name, including this map of Montanus. The map appeared in Jacob van Meurs' "Ambassades mémorables de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales des Provinces Unies, vers les Empereurs du Japon". An attractive example but with old tears and folds necessitating backing. All printed detail present and clear.
