This lovely map extends from eastern edge of Persia across India and China to the southern parts of Japan, including all of Southeast Asia, the Philippines, western New Guinea, and the western two-thirds of northern Australia (labeled “Nova Hollandia”; New Holland). Coastal ports are most densely identified on the coasts of India, Ceylon (Sri Lanka), the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Sulawesi, Vietnam, Philippines, and China. Interior towns and rivers in China are especially detailed. The Australian Gulf of Carpentaria has many coastal features named. An intricate, decorative title cartouche in the lower left features a variety of indigenous people with riches flora and fauna.

Condition: Excellent condition with a sharp impression and original color on clean paper with full margins.
