Published by Danckerts, 1680
Justus Danckerts published this beautiful, hand-colored copperplate engraving in 1680. This finely detailed reproduction correctly identifies Korea as a peninsula of Asia and Japan as a collection of islands.
A stunning cartouche is embellished on the map. Also of note is the inclusion of Hollandia Nova (Australia) that the Dutch used as a guide to direct them to the Dutch East Indies.
