"This volume comprises a selection of the research papers presented at a two-day symposium on the history of cartography, which took place at Leiden University Library on September 15–16, 2017. The symposium was titled Mapping Asia: Cartographic Encounters Between East and West and was co-organized by Leiden University Libraries and the Commission on the History of Cartography of the International Cartographic Association (ICA)."

"This proceedings book presents the first-ever cross-disciplinary analysis of 16th-20th century South, East, and Southeast Asian cartography. The central theme of the conference was the mutual influence of Western and Asian cartographic traditions, and the focus was on points of contact between Western and Asian cartographic history. Geographically, the topics were limited to South Asia, East Asia and Southeast Asia, with special attention to India, China, Japan, Korea and Indonesia. Topics addressed included Asia's place in the world, the Dutch East India Company, toponymy, Philipp Franz von Siebold, maritime cartography, missionary mapping and cadastral mapping."
