Description: HOMANN / WEIGEL. Nova Asiae tabula. Double-page engraved map, 290x360 mm, wide margins; hand-colored; matted. Nuremberg: Weigel, circa 1720

Notes: One of the strangest mappings of Japan from the early 18th century. An enormous Yedso is joined to Honshû by a land bridge. The Homann/Weigel map borrows heavily from the Scherer map of Asia issued circa 1705.
