Interesting map depicting some outdated ideas including 'Kompagnies Land' located to the east of Japan.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 Australia is a very odd shape, which incorporates New Guinea, and connect the southern and eastern coastlines with dotted lines. Decorated with a very lovely compass rose and pastel coloring.
