    A scarce and attractive map showing the state of European knowledge of Asia at the end of the 17th century. There is little interior detail and speculative coastlines for northeast Asia. In contrast, we see detailed knowledge of China as a result of activities by the Jesuits and well-defined East Indies as a result of the Dutch East India Company surveys. A very good example of Dutch cartography from the end of its Golden Age.

    Condition is very good, with a small repaired centerfold split at the bottom, mostly marginal. Image size is 20 x 23 (inches)
