Tartariae sive Magni Chami Regni typus.
[Kingdom of the Great Khan].
This glorious map is embellished with an elegant border and a bold, imposing title cartouche in top right corner and a smaller oval cartouche in bottom left corner containing nine lines of Latin text. Natural topography is clearly delineated with the relief shown pictorially. Charming details include a couple of sailing ships, a large flying fish and two warriors in their tented camps. This beautiful and important map, still showing California as a peninsula, was much copied by other cartographers.
