This map appeared in Lopez de Vargas Machuca's scarce Atlas Elemental Moderno, which was intended as a school atlas. The map extends from India through Southeast Asia and identifies major rivers, mountains, and cities. At right is a table identifying the various political divisions in the region and their association with one another.
Original color with light toning along the centerfold and some old adhesive stains along the edges of the sheet, confined to the blank margins.
