Columbus Found Cuba
Columbus in his voyage of 1492
hoped to reach Japan and the rich
isles of the east, and found Cuba in-
stead. On Ruysch's world atlas of
1507 the isles of Japan, later describ-
ed by Marco Polo, are identified with
the Island of Cuba, discovered by
Columbus. Another item in the pos-
session of the Clement's Library is
a 1496 edition of Marco Polo's de-
scription of his journey in the Orient,
the most famous travel book of the
Middle Ages, which includes his de-
scription of Japan.
The map grew as reports of sea-
men and missionaries reached Eu-
rope, and on the Diego Homen map
of 1558, drawn by Hakluyt, Japan
appears in slightly more detail. On
the map published in 1553 by the
Florentine cartographer Gastaldi,
the name "Japan" first is used, al-
though it was spelled "Giapam."
For centuries the legendary Isles
of Gold and Silver haunted the map
of the Pacific. First mentioned by
the Spaniards, they were never
found. On a map published in *1589
the Isle of Silver is shown in its rela-
tion to Japan. On a much later Jap-I
anese world map of 1850, these leg-
endary islands are still shown, illu-
strating the slow transmission of
western knowledge to Japan.
Main Islands in 1672
The three main islands, Honshu,
Kyushu and Shikoku, appear for
the first time in the great atlas of
Ortelius, published in 1672. In 1650
a map was made of northern Japan,
part of the Hokkaidas, and the
southern Kurile Islands by De Vries,
a captain in the Dutch East India
Company, who was sailing along the
coast of Japan in search of the Gold
and Silver Isles.
Other maps on display at the Cle-
ment's Library include a Dutch sea-
chart of Japan from Pieter de Goo'.
"Sea Atlas" of 1669, maps dated 1670
and 1802 of Nagasaki and the Dutch
harbor of Deshima, an 1820 French
map of the Pacific which showed the
results of Russian and English dis-
coveries, and Perry's map of Japan
