This is a chart of the 1643 discoveries to the north of Japan by the Dutch ships Castricum and Breskes, revisited, remapped and published in the atlas describing La Perouse's voyage. It contains two insets at the top of the chart depicting the province of Osju, and at bottom left is a vignette of Company's Land.
