Imagery from “Atlas Japannensis : being remarkable addresses by way of embassy from the East-India Company of the United Provinces to the Emperor of Japan, containing a description of their several territories, cities, temples and fortresses, their religions, laws and customs, their prodigious wealth and gorgeous habits, the nature of their soil, plants, beasts, hills, rivers and fountains, with the character of the ancient and modern Japanners.” Published in London in 1670.
