Interesting small map of the continent and South East Asia. Japan appears as a large single island incorporating Terra Yedso, and Compagnie Land is still shown to the east of Japan. The decorative title cartouche depicts merchants and exotic animals. A panel of German text to right of map describes the major empires.
Dark impression and original color with some soil in margins.
