Striking example of Scherer's map of Southeast Asia and the Northern part of Australia. Nova Guinea is still tenatively attached to Nova Hollandia. The coastline showns Van Arnham's Land, Van Der Lin, C. Diemen and C. Van Diemen's Land. A narrow strait between Nova Guinea and Papua New Guinea is in evidence. Detailed and elaborate treatment of the Philippines. Extends west to Ceylon and the Gulf of Bengal. Wide clean margins and an excellent dark impression. An attractive example of this sought after map.
