Attractive map of the Eastern Hemisphere. Africa is shown on the Ptolemaic model with the Nile rising from twin lakes below the equator. The eastern coast of Asia is severely truncated, and Japan and Iedso are connected forming a large blob. Australia is partially mapped. Three diagrams are at the bottom.
Small printer's ink smudge at left, else fine.
