This decorative small map, with a rococo-style title cartouche and compass rose, extends from Persia to Indochina and south to include most of Sumatra and the corner of Borneo. It provides a good depiction of the Maldives, Ceylon, and the islands in the Indian Ocean with several of the smaller islands named. At the top of the map is the Coby or Sandy Desert, north of the Kingdom of Tibet. Engraved by R. Reynolds.
A nice impression with a few miniscule pinholes only visible when held to light.
