A very uncommon map with a pictorial cartouche featuring Chinese merchants with temples in the background. The map covers most of China with an unusual depiction of the Korean peninsula showing the Isle de Fungma ou de Quelpaerts at its southern tip.
A clean and bright example with a crisp impression on paper with a large coat of arms watermark. There are several printer's creases adjacent to centerfold that have been reinforced on verso with old paper.
