Description

One of the earliest, obtainable maps to focus on Taiwan. Oriented with north to the left, the map shows the southwestern portion of the island, as well as the adjacent Penghu Islands (Ilhas Piscadores).

The interior of the island is filled with a large panoramic view of a mountain range.
