Influential map of Southeast Asia and the East Indies including modern day Thailand, southern Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Borneo, Sumatra and Java. Ottens incorporated information provided by the French Jesuits and charts the route of the French Embassy to and from Siam in 1685-1686 through the Straits of Banca and the Gulf of Siam.
It was drawn by Joachim Ottens shortly before his death and was published by his sons and later republished by Covens and Mortier.

The upper map focuses on the territories currently occupied by modern day Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, northern Borneo, and northern Malaysia. With good detail of the Andaman Islands, the Gulf of Thailand (Golfe de Siam) and coastal Vietnam. In the Kingdom of Siam, this 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 Camboia, and the Dutch trading mission.
In the seas this map offers numerous depth soundings.
Joachim Ottens (1663 - 1719) and his sons Renier and Joshua were prominent Dutch booksellers and map publishers from about 1680 to 1790. Joachim, the founder of the firm, was initially employed as a copperplate engraver by Frederick de Wit. In 1711 Joachim founded his own firm. Though Joachim died only a few years later, his sons Renier and Joshua took over the firm and presided over its most prolific period.
