This delightful copper engraved map of the region extends from India to the Philippines and south to include all of Indonesia. In China there are three large spurious lakes and a confused river system. The decorative title cartouche includes an elephant and a man with a tamed leopard.
Very sharp impression and lovely color. The binding trimmed margin has been extended to better accommodate framing.
