Map Notes

Map Discription
(Walter:) The depiction of Japan is similar to that on the map of Asia (cat. no. 11C), but here it has a clear east-west orientation. The reference to the name Zipangri used by Marco Polo is noteworthy. It is also interesting that Japan is equally distant from Asia and America, which are separated only by the gStretto di Anianh (Strait of Anian).
Map Comments
Glazed, coloured, overall excellent condition.
