This rare map of Asia depicts the northern region projecting too far east with the Land of Jesso extending off the map. The map includes good detail through South East Asia and the islands in the Indian Ocean. It is embellished with a simple strapwork title cartouche. The map may have been drawn by Robert Morden but there is no engraver's signature.
