Fine map of Asia and the East Indies with extensive internal political and geographical details. This map is based on Delisle's general map of Asia with Nova Zemla shown connecting to the continent and Witsen's mountainous peninsula with a note that it is not certain where this point of land ends. Hokkaido (Terre de Yeco) is attached to Japan and separated from the mainland by a narrow Detroit du Jessor. The southern coast of Terre de la Compagnie appears to the east of Hokkaido. Keys at left and top right sides record the countries, principal cities and major rivers of Asia.
