Caption

Map of China. This map shows the sixteen provinces of Imperial China in the 17th century during the Ming Dynasty. Ming territory included vassal states in Korea and Japan (both at upper right). Mountains and towns are shown pictorially and symbolically. Regions shown here include the islands of Hainan (lower left) and Formosa (bisected by the Tropic of Cancer). This map was produced by the Italian Jesuit missionary and cartographer Martino Martini (1614-1661). It formed part of the atlas 'Novus atlas Sinensis' (Joan Blaeu, Amsterdam, 1655). The text is in Latin, and the title artwork (upper left) shows Chinese farmers.
