L'Isle Formose Et Partie Des Costes De La Chine : J. N. Bellin

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A scarce and sought-after map Taiwan, then named Formose, for Formosa. There are very few maps of the island alone and this is one of the first obtainable maps with discernible detail. The west coast is well defined while the east coast, lacking the direct trading connections to the mainland is marked in French as little-known. The map was prepared by the leading French mapmaker of the period based on reports and observations of the many Jesuit missionaries and European merchants active at the time. With attractive wash colour.
