A chart of the eastermost part of the East Indies and China, from Cape Comarine to Iapan, with all the adjacent islands

This map of China, Japan and Southeast Asia appeared in The English pilot, the third book in 1711, originally published by John Thornton in 1703. Thornton based the 'pilot' upon confidential Dutch manuscript sea-charts, mostly those of Bleau's. Samuel Thornton took over the publication after his father's death in 1708, producing a new edition in 1711. Few changes were made to the actual content of the maps, although John's name was replaced with Samuel's in the cartouche. -- Dealer's description.
