An Accurate Map of Asia.
(Asia Continent- Arabia- India- China- Russian Empire- Tartary- Persia- Siam).
Issued 1766, London. Drawn by Sieur Robert. Engraved by G. Rollos.
Interesting mid-18th century map, engraved with lovely hand color. Large scroll and vegetation cartouche top right. Includes the mythical "Company's Land" north of Jedo, shown as typical with just a partial coastal outline and place name.
Nice looking example, pleasing age patina, several well done repairs on reverse to fold-line intersections, slight soiling in spots, but the age flaws are easy to overlook or visually forgive.
Sheet Measures c. 8 3/4"H x 12 1/2"W.
Engraved Area Measures c. 7 3/4"H x 11 3/4"W.
