Attractive reduced version of Moll's map of Asia (1708), which was based on the Delisle prototype. Despite the title claiming that the map was made from the Newest Observations, Moll continues the speculation that Iesso L. (Hokkaido) might be attached to the mainland. Published in London in Thomas Salmon's Modern History: or the Present State of All Nations.
