one of homann's most interesting and influential maps framed prints, this 1725 map depicts the caspian sea and the peninsula of kamchatka. essentially two maps in one framed prints, homann here juxtaposes two opposite parts of asia: the caspian sea framed prints, which forms part the western border of asia and europe framed prints, and the peninsula of kamchatka framed prints, the easternmost known point in continental asia. while this combination may seem odd to us today framed prints, to the 18th century european framed prints, reared on the works of marco polo and steeped in the legends of wealth associated with the orient framed prints, it represented the legendary silk route across asia as well as the eastern and western most claims of the expanding russian empire. during this period framed prints, both the caspian sea and kamchatka were actively being explored by european powers eager to exploit the riches of asia. the left hand map framed prints, focusing on the caspian sea framed prints, marks a significant step forward in the mapping of this region framed prints, reflecting the 1719 - 1721 survey work of the russian navy officer karl van verden. verden's work framed prints, completed shortly before this map's publication was the most advanced mapping of the caspian sea to date framed prints, offering a new perspective on the region and opening the navigational possibility of the world's largest lake. the right hand map depicts kamchatka. though only tentatively explored at this point framed prints, russian forces under vladimir alassov took control of the peninsula in 1697. in the process they stumbled upon a small colony of japanese shipwreck survivors framed prints, a discovery that lead the russians to speculate that kamchatka was one and the same with yedso (jedo or modern day hokkaido) framed prints, the northernmost part of japan. homann's timely map of the region thus had a significant impact on subsequent cartography of the region. most importantly homann's map influenced engelbert kaempfer's 1727 history of japan which laid the ground work for european cartographic representations of japan for the next 50 to 60 years. subsequent maps of japan would incorporate the mythical island of matsumai (shown here as matmanska) into a small archipelago joining japan to kamchatka - thus placing part of the prized japanese island chain in the sphere of russian framed prints, hence european framed prints, influence. east of kamchatka there appear two large bodies of land. these mythical landmasses reflect speculation associated with the connections between northeastern asia and northwestern america. many early maps incorporated these islands framed prints, often called compagnie land framed prints, terre de compagnie framed prints, gamaland framed prints, or just gama. though not labeled as such on this map framed prints, there is no doubt this land is what homann is attempting to represent. compagnie was supposedly discovered by the mysterious sailor jean de gama in the 17th century. most likely this territory is framed prints, one of homann's most interesting and influential maps greeting cards, this 1725 map depicts the caspian sea and the peninsula of kamchatka. essentially two maps in one greeting cards, homann here juxtaposes two opposite parts of asia: the caspian sea greeting cards, which forms part the western border of asia and europe greeting cards, and the peninsula of kamchatka greeting cards, the easternmost known point in continental asia. while this combination may seem odd to us today greeting cards, to the 18th century european greeting cards, reared on the works of marco polo and steeped in the legends of wealth associated with the orient greeting cards, it represented the legendary silk route across asia as well as the eastern and western most claims of the expanding russian empire. during this period greeting cards, both the caspian sea and kamchatka were actively being explored by european powers eager to exploit the riches of asia. the left hand map greeting cards, focusing on the caspian sea greeting cards, marks a significant step forward in the mapping of this region greeting cards, reflecting the 1719 -
