Date: 1689 (published) Amsterdam
Original Size: 19 x 22.5 inches (28 x 57 cm)
This is a fine print reproduction of de Wit's 17th century map of Asia. The map extends from Eastern Europe, Asia Minor, and the Horn of Africa in the West to Japan, New Guinea, and the Northern part of Australia in the East.
Great new detail had been added in India and Southeast Asia as the map was made during the height of the spice trade. The title cartouche pays homage to the importance of this trade by showing a group of merchants sitting around their cargo, a camel, and pair of exotic birds. Towns, cities, and topographic detail fills the interior of the map and it was masterfully colored to define regions. European and Asia ships are shown sailing the open sea.
