Handsome map including the tip of India and a part of Sri Lanka. The interior is filled with exotic animals, the sea is full of sailing ships, as well as two compass roses with rhumb lines and a very decorative title cartouche and distance scale. This map was included in Volume II to accompany "Mr. John Nieuhoff's Remarkable Voyages & Travels to Brasil and the East Indies."
Damp stained into map image at bottom, still an attractive map.
