1620 Tartaria

Size Guide

By: Jodocus Hondius
Date: 1620 (circa) Amsterdam.
Original Size: 19.5 x 13.5 inches (49.5 x 34.3 cm)
This is a fine reproduction of a very early and highly decorative map of Tartaria (eastern Russia). The map includes the Great Wall of China, an incomplete Nova Zembla, Korea as an island and an early acknowledgement of Alaska. The possibility of a northeastern passage is promoted through the strait of Anian into the northern Pacific.
Numerous towns, cities, lakes, river and mountains fill the land while two vignettes of native people and a nomadic family with tents and livestock enhance the aesthetic value of the map.
This is an excellent and appealing example of Hondius’s map “Tartary,” with the inclusions of North America, Korea, China, northern Mongolia, and Armenia. Latin text on verso.
