Two ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE Chinese porcelain cups and plates from the VOC “Geldermalsen”

The Geldermalsen hit a reef in January 1752 and sunk, but her load was recoverd in the 1980ies. In 1986 Chrisite’s sold 160.000 porcelain items in mint condition. These 2 cups and 2 plates are currently exposed at the exhibition “The Republic color the World” (in the map section on the VOC). Check us out at FB @worldofmappamundi. For more information on the Geldermalsen and on these items, go to our posting at FB @worldofmappamundi of November 20, 2017. This page is non-commmercial.

TIME FOR CHINA, first appearance

TIME FOR MARTINO MARTINI, first  mention

Martini S.J. made the first western atlas on the provinces of China. His work was innovatively breathtaking. His China map shows, inter alia, Proper or Ming China, the imaginary Lake Kiang (just outside Ming China), the brown dotted snake of the Gobi desert, etc... Many, many more Martini maps are to come! We will give a free seminar on the complete Martini atlas on Sunday, November 18 at 11.00 hours a.m. at  the Mercator museum (Sint-Niklaas, Belgium). Check us out on FB @worldofmappamundi. For much more information on this map and on Martini go to our posting at FB of January 11, 2018.

When people refer to different states of a map, they generally are referring to different impressions made following alterations to the plate. Far less common, publishers would scratch printed information off the map surface, as in the case here, where the 12th May, 1794 date was removed from the Laurie & Whittle map of China, c. 1818. #chinamaps #chineseantiques #antiquemaps

1798 Houckgeest Narrative of the Titsingh Mission w/ Map of China

https://www.geographicus.com/P/AntiqueMap/China-houckgeest-1798

This is a rare 1797/98 Andreas Everardus van Braam Houckgeest two-volume narrative of a VOC embassy to the court of the Qianlong Emperor, in China, and its accompanying maps. During this voyage, Houckgeest became the first American to meet a Chinese Emperor and visit Beijing (Peking). The two volumes describe the important 1794 - 1795 journey and are accompanied by multiple plates, a map of Macao, and one large, two-part, map of China.

Bird's-eye view of the Middle Kingdom: while panoramic maps exist for many cities and countries around the world, very few were made of China. Fortunately, a handful of Japanese artists in the 19th and 20th centuries created aerial views of China or its regions, most notably Katsushika Hokusai of "Great Wave" fame. Created in 1840, Hokusai's Famous Views of China is arguably the greatest bird's-eye map of China ever made. #antiquemaps #chinamaps

Crimes against cartography: poorly executed / excessive colouring is the bane of every collector. These maps are NOT in the collection...in fact, only a handful of maps even have recent hand colouring. #antiquemaps  #chinamaps
