This map extends from above Kabul in the northwest to below the equator, and from the eastern border of Persia to the western end of Borneo, including all of Indochina, the Malay Peninsula, and a large part of Sumatra. The title cartouche in the upper right corner is surrounded by a decorative rectangular frame. Under the map proper is a large dedication “To the Honorable the Governer Deputy and Court of Committies of the Company of Marchants tradeing in to the East Indies.” The map displays conjectural courses of rivers and interior mountain ranges and towns. In the seas are three European sailing ships and two sea monsters.
Condition: Restoration along left side, just beyond margin and some offsetting in the lower half. Original color.
