This is a finely detailed map of Southeast Asia, published by John Thomson out of Edinburgh in 1817.

The map centers on the island of Borneo and includes the Birman Empire, Sumatra, Java, Indonesia, the Philippines, a portion of Taiwan and Hainan. Topographic detail is shown by hachure with towns, rivers, roads, and larger cities noted throughout the map.

John Thomson (1777-1840) was a Scottish cartographer based out of Edinburgh who is most well-known for his 1817 New General Atlas. This monumental work provided maps of great detail for nearly every country and island across the world. While other map makers would fill empty and unknown spaces with vignettes and geographical assumptions, Thompson elected to leave such spaces void of any uncertain cartography.

Condition: This map is in A condition with original color on heavy paper and full margins. A centerfold separation within the lower margin has been repaired with archival materials.
