Attractive reduced version of Moll's map of Asia (1708), which was based on the Delisle prototype. Despite the title claiming that the map was made from the Newest Observations, Moll continues the speculation that Iesso L. (Hokkaido) might be attached to the mainland.


Condition: A

A nice impression on a bright sheet with some marginal creasing.

Estimate: $200 - $230
