Description: HOMANN, JOHANN BAPTIST. Asia Poly Glotta. Small engraved map from a suite of 4, 165x205 mm, wide margins; hand-colored; matted. Nuremberg, first quarter 18th century

Notes: Map shows various areas of Asia and the types of written scripts used. Some of the scripts appear to be entirely fanciful, including the one representing Japan. The map was reissued in larger format by the heirs of Homann in the early 1740s, along with the companion maps for America, Europe, and Africa.
