A highly decorative and rare map of Asia by Guillaume Danet. THis was a seperately issued map one of series of World and Continents originally published 1729-32
The geography for the most part was derived from De L'Isle 1720 map, but the map is especially interesting for its depiction of Kamchatka which is taken from Strahlenberg's 1730 map. The semi-mythical land of Jesso joins Kamchatka, and the title cartouche hides the eastern end of 'Terre de Compagnie' in the North Pacific.
The highly decorative border of this map is its highlight.. it contains a series of scallop shells and armorial shields of China, Ceylon, India etc .
Elaborate decorative cartouche.
