Description:

Nice example of John Speed's map of Southeast Asia, China, Taiwan and part of India, which was engraved by Francis Lamb and first appeared in the enlarged edition of Speed's Atlas in 1676.

Speed's map includes a fascinating Anglocentric description in English text on the verso.  This is one of a small group of  new maps added by Bassett & Chiswell to the 1676 edition of Speed's Atlas.  The maps were engraved by Francis Lamb, as Speed had been dead for half a century by the time these maps were engraved.
