Interesting map depicting some outdated ideas including "Kompagnies Land" located to the east of Japan. The islands of the Philippines and Indonesia are not well shaped, and Australis is a very odd shape which incorporates New Guinea with most of the southern and eastern coastlines shown as dotted lines. Decorated with a very lovely compass rose and pastel coloring.
