Carte de L'Asie
25 x 19 in (64 x 48 cm)
This 19th century map from France depicts Asia in 1841. This is particularly fascinating because 1841 is actually the year the colonization of Northern Asia really began, with the seizure of Hong Kong from China by the English. France does not establish a colonial prescence in the region until 3 years after the publication of this poster.
