Charming reduced version of this German map covers the continent and the East Indies. Terra Yedso is represented here as a large landmass to the north of Japan (Honshu) and linked by a narrow causeway. Compagnie Land is shown to the east and marked with a notation that is was discovered by Don Iean de Gama. There is no Kamchatka peninsula and Nova Zembla appears to be a peninsula rather than an island. The cartouche represents the exotic East with people and animals. Another decorative cartouche at top incorporates the distance scales. Engraved by Tobias Lotter.

References: Yeo #133.

Condition: B+

Map is a bit toned. There is some old glue in the left margin, and a few tiny edge tears not affecting the map.
