Description

Important map of Southeast Asia covers from the southern part of the Indochinese Peninsula through to the northern coastline of Java and the eastern part of Borneo, published by Nolin, following his lengthy collaboration with Coronelli..

The map is filled with information including extensive soundings along coastlines and historical notations. The map is the result of France's first embassy to Southeast Asia in 1685, which was led by Chevalier de Chaumont in the company of six Jesuit fathers. The route of the embassy is noted on the map. The title cartouche is engraved onto a blanket-draped elephant.
