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.
Lightly toned with slightly faded color. A tiny fold separation in the top margin has been closed with archival tape.
