This is a very attractive, large map of Southeast Asia, covering the vast region extensively explored by the Europeans with particular emphasis on the trade routes on the mainland and the islands of the Philippines and the East Indies. Korea is correctly shown as a peninsula, although much too wide and the Japanes islands are somewhat miss-shaped. The map is filled with details of topography, rivers, lakes, towns, and roads. French text block. From L'Atlas Historique.
