Münster’s decorative final map of Asia, from a German edition of Münster’s "Cosmographia", one of the most influential geographical works of the 16th Century.
This is what is generally considered the second Munster map of Asia, published by Henrich Petri in 1588. Following the model established by Ortelius’ 1567 "Asiae Nova Descriptio", this map covers from the Mediterranean to Japan and from the Arctic to Java.
Relief is rendered in profile and numerous towns and cities are noted. Sumatra is identified as "Taprobana", and Japan appears in its kite-form and is based upon Jesuit sources.

The great rivers of Southeast Asia, the Mekong, Chao Phraya, Irrawaddy, and Brahmaputra, are drawn as originating from a large lake in the mountains of what is today northern Thailand – no doubt a precursor of the apocryphal lake of "Chiamay". The islands of East Indies, collectively identified here as the "Moluccos", are vaguely rendered but are recognizable nonetheless.​ ​
