Color: Hand Color
22.2 x 18.5 inches

An unusual map of Asia extending to include all of present-day Indonesia and the northern coastline of Nouvelle Hollande. There is sparse detail on the continent but good information in the East Indies and Pacific. Decorative title cartouche featuring a Chinese with a camel and an elephant.
Clean and crisp with minor stains at corners. Bottom margin trimmed but more than adequate for framing.
