Lovely map of the Asian continent surrounded by fully colored steel engraved vignettes depicting costumes of the various peoples of Asia, Adam and Eve, and several exotic animals. One of the last maps produced in the decorative style.
Couple of small tears in blank margins, closed with archival tape. One small tape burn in margin, not affecting map.
