Nicely engraved copper plate map of India, Southern China and part of Southeast Asia. Map extends from eastern border with Persia and eastward to include Coree and Formosa. Embellished with a fine cartouche.
Nice impression on thick hand laid paper. Original outline color in map with later color to cartouche. Well done repair to marginal centerfold split, just into border, still very good.
