杰拉德·德约德(1509-1591)于1578 年首次发布了地图集《镜》(‘Speculum’)。杰拉德出版《镜》的初衷是为与亚伯拉罕·奥特柳斯(1527-1598)的地图集《世界概貌》(‘Theatrum Orbis Terrarum’)竞争。15年之后杰拉德·德约德去世,其子科内利斯在的基础上添加新的地图制作成更完善的版本,此例则是新添地图之一。

此地图同样以著名葡萄牙制图师刘易斯·乔治·巴布达(1564-1613)手绘的中国地图作为基础绘制完成。在圆形地图四周绘有精美的花饰,以及讲述远东生活的四个小插图(从左上顺时针):正在捕鱼的鸬鹚;一艘带有烟囱顶小屋的渔船,一圈栅栏圈养着鸭子;崇奉三头神;以及许多早期欧洲地图上绘有的风车。

De Jode first published his ‘Speculum’ in 1578. Intended as competition to Ortelius’ popular ‘Theatrum’, it faired poorly and sales were disappointing; another edition was produced after de Jode’s death by his son Cornelius in 1593. For this edition, Cornelius introduced several new maps, of which the present item is a superb example.

 

The map is based upon the work of the Portuguese Jorge de Barbuda, whose map of China appeared in the work of de Jode’s competitor, Ortelius, in 1584. The circular map is framed by elaborate strap-work and four vignettes of Far Eastern life: fish-catching cormorants; a fishing boat with a chimney-topped cabin with a pen attached to the side sheltering domestic fowl; the worship of a triple-headed deity; and the famous wind carts depicted on many early European maps of the region, including those of Hondius and Speed.
