A very attractive map of Asia, combining the latest information available to Senex with the many misconceptions of the continent prevalent in Europe at the time. Many rivers, towns, lake, roads, and other information is presented from the Urals to the East Indies.

The map tracks the currents in the Indian Ocean by month and also notes the currents along the east coast of SE Asia and the Philippines.

An inset of "ye supposed N. Coast of Asia" is given in the lower left "to avoid too great a contraction of the scale." The map is most confused in the seas to the north of Japan. The "Land of Iess" and "Companys Land" are shown as large land masses, and north of them is an open "Eastern Ocean."
A detailed cartouche, which shows two figures in Asian dress, along with flora and fauna of the continent.View Item

Striking map of Southeast Asia by John Senex. The area portrayed extends from Japan and a peninsular Korea to New Guinea and Timor in the east and to India in the west.

The map is centered on China and the Malay Peninsula, with the Indian subcontinent and the islands of Southeast Asia filling the rest of the space. The Maldives are lined up just next to the western border. Japan is relatively horizontal in orientation and the many islands of Southeast Asia are individually labelled.

However, many unknowns remain; for example, New Guinea, "Inhabited by the Papuas," is incomplete, with no eastern border. Similarly, the north of Japan is open. Peeking out of the northern border just north of Japan is an unlabelled coast line, perhaps a suggestion of one of the vast islands thought to fill the area, a misunderstanding of the outline of Hokkaido.View Item
