Scarce chart of the Philippines and the eastern part of Indonesia reflecting the Dutch interests in the region. The map provides a detailed view of hundreds of tiny islands, including the famous Spice Islands, that were once the heart of the Dutch spice trade and economic domination of the region.
Wide original margins and lovely original color. Couple of unobtrusive spots in title, else very fine.
