Fine, copper engraved, double hemisphere map centered on South East Asia, and featuring the topography rather than political divisions. Five other projections surround the map; northern, southern, western, eastern and Mercators. Pictorial title cartouche with the four female representations of the continents, Venus in a seashell, and frolicking mermaids. Tiny bit of minor foxing, overall very good.
