Title: 'Asiae Nova Descriptio'.
A fine general map of the Continent of Asia from Ortelius' important World Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". Includes Japan in an almost recognizably modern 3-island form, but not include Korea. Latin text to verso, second plate.
The condition is very good with only the very small remains of some masking tape on the verso (that could be removed and in no way distracts from the image).
