Charming reduced version of this German map covering the continent and the East Indies. Terra Yedso is represented here as a large landmass to the north of Japan and linked by a narrow causeway. Compagnie Land is show to the east and marked with a notation that is was discovered by Don Juan de Gama. There is no Kamchatka peninsula and Nova Zembla appears to be a peninsula rather than an island. The uncolored cartouche represents the exotic East with people and animals. Another cartouche at top incorporates the distance scales.
