This curious map is finely drawn on a slightly trapezoid projection. It includes the area of present day Burma, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. Limited details include major cities, rivers and some topographical information. It includes the Andaman Islands and Taiwan (Insel Hainan), and part of the mouth of the Ganges.
On thin paper with huge margins and deckled edges and two watermarks. A few very small and light spots, otherwise near fine.
