This great chart of the East Indies focuses on the islands of Java, Sumatra, Celebes, Borneo, and the lesser islands of the archipelago. The northern tip of Australia is shown at lower right, and a small portion of Nouvelle Guinee is shown in the east. The map is centered on the huge island of Borneo and locates scores of smaller islands, portions of Malacca (Malaysia), Cambodia, and the Philippines. The map is embellished with rhumblines and trade wind arrows. This is Bonne's larger and less common chart of the region. Title above upper neatline.
A crisp impression on paper with the watermark of a Maltese cross encircled in rosary beads. There is some faint toning and marginal soiling.
