Description:

Detailed map of Southeast Asia and the North Coast of Australia, published in Amsterdam by Nicolas Visscher.

The map extends from India and the Maldives in the west, to New Guinea and the southern coast of Japan in the East, centered with the Stratis of Malaca and Malay Peninsula.

The treatment of Australia is of great interest, with a number of placenames on the Northern Coast, but only a tentative passage between Australia and New Guinea.

Includes a lively cartouche, compass rose and rhumb lines.
