Jim Siebold 收集世界地图40年,把所有地图按年代整理,发表在网站。从西元前6000年到文艺复兴(1490-1800) 



An amateur cartographic historian. Over the past 45 years I have tried to accumulate information relating to my favorite old maps, resulting in over 6,000 pages over 200+ monographs and my website since 1994.


Dr. Siu-Leung Lee theorizes that the world map Kun Yu Wan Guo Quan Tu, a map completely labeled in Chinese and previously thought to be the works of the Italian Jesuit Matteo Ricci in 1602, is incompatible with the authorship of Matteo Ricci or European cartographers. The following summarizes Dr. Lee’s observations.

[此处列举我的证据,从略,见Siebold 网站。]

By Dr. Lee’s account, according to a statement and the historical background of place names on the map, it is constructed between 1428 and 1430, more than 60 years before Christopher Columbus’ first voyage. Martino Martini’s Novus Atlas Sinensis also supports the capability of Chinese cartography in Ming dynasty. The loss of original Chinese documents, translational errors, and Ming politics have kept this secret for the past 600 years, until the details of this map are publicly available. According to Dr. Lee the entire history of cartography and Age of Exploration should be revised to include the pioneering voyages (1405-1433) and cartographical development led by Zheng He, the Chinese Admiral.
