Mattheus QUAD (Deventer 1557 - Colonia 1613)
Asia Partivorbis maxima..
1600. "Rara ed affascinante carta dell'Asia. Matthaus Quad era un cartografo tedesco risiedente a Colonia, città che, all'epoca, era il punto nevralgico della cartografia tedesca. Questa carta, presa da dal suo ""Fascilus Geographicus"", è stata stampata da Johannes Bussemacher." Scarce early map of the Asia from Quad's Atlas Geographische Handbuch, published by Johann Bussemacher. Quad's map is a marvelous amalgam of early cartographic information and mis-inforamtion. The Korean peninsula does not appear. Japan is shaped in a very curious C shape. The Philippines is oddly misconfigured and much of SE Asia is mishaped or conjectural. Rich dark impression and full color, with wide margins.
