Beautifully coloured carte a figures map of Asia from a William Humble edition of John Speed’s “A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World”. One of the most sought after maps of Asia, it is decorated across the top with views of eight cities of the region and panels down both sides depicting local men and women in period dress. A description of Asia appears on the verso in English. Other than a tiny rust-hole just below the title cartouche, the map is a superb dark impression in excellent condition. 39.5 cm x 51 cm
