Fine antique map of China, Korea and Japan

Tartarie Chinoise, Roy. de Coree et Isles du Japon par M. Bonne, Ing. Hydrographe de la Marine

DESCRIPTION: Map of China, Korea and Japan includes only northern China, extending south as far as Nanjing. Numerous cities are shown spread throughout China, however fewer are shown in Korea and Japan reflecting the lack of knowledge of these regions in the late 18th century. The Great Wall of China is also depicted.

Rigobert Bonne (1727-1794) was the successor to Jacques Nicolas Bellin as Royal Cartographer to France in the office of the Hydrographer at the Depôt de la Marine. Bonne first came to prominence when he published a number of charts in the Atlas Maritime in 1762. He is better known for later publications, including the Atlas Encyclopedique, which he collaborated on with Nicholas Desmarest, as well as the maps he produced for Raynal's Atlas de Toutes Les Parties Connues du Globe Terrestre, which was published in 1780.
