Lovely map of the continent including the East Indies. Filled with details including what appears to be a road from Moscow to Peking. The coast of Asia stretches off the map, hinting at a land-link with North America. Title, dedication, and scale of miles cartouches decorate the map. Crisp impression, minor toning.
