This is a fine print reproduction of a lovely example of Pierre Mortier's map of Southeast Asia, including the Kingdom of Siam and other territories. This remarkable map was one of the largest and most detailed maps of this region to appear in the early 18th century.
The map covers much of Southeast Asia and the East Indies including modern day Thailand, South Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Borneo, Sumatra and Java. It also offers wonderful detail of the Andaman Islands, the Gulf of Thailand (Golfe de Siam) and coastal Vietnam. Navigable inland river systems, are also depicted, particularly the Mekong and the Chao Phraya. In the Kingdom of Siam, the map shows the fortress of Bangkok, the ancient Siamese capital of Ayutthaya, royal palace, and the Dutch trading colony.
In Cambodia, it details the village of Ponompingn (Phnom Penh), Lewek on Camodia, and the Dutch trading mission. In the seas this map offers numerous depth soundings and shows the trade routes between Batavia (Jakarta, Java) and Siam (Thailand) and details the shoals and reefs off the coast of modern day Vietnam. Mountain regions are shown pictorially.
The bottom map details the southern parts of the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Borneo and Java focusing on the Straits of Singapore (Cingapura). Numerous forts, trade missions, and settlements are depicted. The trade routes between Siam and Batavia are illustrated along with some of the hazards of the Straits of Cingapura (Singapore).

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
