A masterpiece large format map of India and Southeast Asia by Herman Moll, originally published in 1717 at the height of European Colonialism in the region. Moll was the finest English cartographer of his time, and this was the first large scale English map of the region.
This map covers a huge area, from the border of Persia on the west to New Guinea and the southern edge of Japan in the east. India, Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Siam (Thailand), Malaysia, Borneo, Philippines, Indonesia, and a large part of China are all visible in this map.
Close-up engravings of major cities and ports in Bantam, Goa, Surat, Madras, and Batavia are shown on the left edge of the map, and if you look closely there are many rich annotations describing the Colonial European influence on the region.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x18 inches (31x46cm), 15x24 inches (38x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 170 inches (432cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 36x24 inch (91.5x61cm) version of this map.
Please note, the unframed 15x24 inch map has white edges around the map. These edges can help you with framing, or if you don’t need them, they are very easy to snip off with scissors. All other maps, including the framed maps, look exactly like the listing images.
If you’re looking for more options, I have another interesting South East Asia map by Jan Huygen Van Linschoten in 1596.
The locations on this map include: India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Tibet, Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan and Indonesia.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from Asia or has the South East Asia in their heart.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
