Fascinating Jesuit map of Asia, published in Munich by Heinrich Scherer.

Emphasizing the Jesuit missions in Asia, the map covers the region between the Red Sea and the Philippines, along with the northern Coast of Austalia.

Scherer's cartouche provides an allegorical celebrating the conversion of the Asian people to Christianity and incorporates a vignette of Adam and Eve with the serpent and the apple tree.
