Small version of Hondius' important map of the continent and the East Indies. Korea appears as a long island and an exaggerated Gulf of Cambay distorts the Indian subcontinent. The extreme eastern part of the map shows a bit of the coastline of America with the label Americae Pars separated from Asia by the Anian Fretum. The map is decorated with a pair of strapwork cartouches for the title and scale of miles. Latin text on verso.
