A scarce wall map of Asia, derived from Nicolas de Fer's map of c.1700, but amended with details from other sources, for example north-eastern Asia after Isbrandt Ides, with the Asian mainland pushing east across the north Pacific. The panelled borders show natives and events from different countries.
