The map was originally printed on four sheets that have been joined into two large horizontal sheets. It includes a very large calligraphic title in the lower left and a dedication to the Directors for Managing the affairs of the Honourable East India Company of Merchants of England trading to the East Indies. The map details cities, towns, roads, rivers, lakes and mountains, as well as various political possessions detailed in original coloring.
