A new plaine and exact map of Asia

A rare separately issued carte-a-figure map of Asia. The borders are decorated with costumed figures, town views amd portraits of kings. As Overton's apparently matching map of Africa is signed by Philip Holmes, the stylistic similarity makes it likely that Holmes also engraved Asia. Originally issued in 1668, this is an example of the second state, with Overton's new address. -- Dealer's description.
