Literature

Van der Krogt 2:641.10 (but the present copy dated 1657 rather than 1658).

Catalogue Note

THE FIRST EUROPEAN ATLAS OF CHINA. This was published separately, as here, or as the sixth volume of Blaeu's Theatrum. The maps, after Martino Martini's surveys, display the unique collaboration between the Jesuit Superior of Hangchow, and the Amsterdam cartographer, Johannes Blaeu. The resulting atlas of seventeen maps contains a general map of China, fifteen maps of provinces and a separate map of Japan.
