Iaponia et Terra Eso Year: 1651 Publication: Atlas Minor Cartographer: Mercator / Jansson Size : 190 x 150mm State: Good Type: Copper engraving Colour: None Verso: Text This map is from Mercators Atlas Minor, published by Johannes Janssonius. The first German edition appeared in 1648. This map is from the second edition and was published in 1651. The atlas was published in two volumes containing 215 maps. Because the original copperplates of Mercator were sold in London between 1621 and 1625, J. Janssonius had new plates made by Pieter van den Keere and Abraham Goos. The first edition of Atlas Minor published by Janssonius appeared in 1628. The copperplates were later on used by Pieter van der Aa. This unusual map of Japan and Korea is the only edition which appeared in the German version of Atlas Minor published by Janssonius. This specific map was not used in any of the other editions of Atlas Minor. A nice detail is the fact that Korea is shown as an island. There is a tear of about 3cm, of which half a centimetre goes into the plate. Both the bottom and top right corner show a moister stain. The map is guaranteed authentic and is supplied with a certificate of authenticity.
