This is a slightly enlarged version of Gastaldi's important map of South East Asia. It covers the region from the Gulf of Bengal to Canton, and south to include most of Indonesia and the Philippines, although the Malaysian Peninsula and the islands are very distorted. Italian text on verso.
There is some printer's ink residue and light soil on the map.
