This interesting small map covers the continent and South East Asia in nice detail. Japan appears as a large single island incorporating Terra Yedso, and Compagnie Land is still shown to the east of Japan. The decorative title cartouche features merchants, exotic animals, and a ship. There is a panel of German text to right of the map.
In original color with a light stain in the lower margin that just enters the neatline and minor soiling mostly in the blank margins.
