An early map of Java set in a page of Latin text from Munster's "Cosmography". The page measures 17 x 25 cm. Despite the map's miniature size it is populated with images of figures at work (there seems to be a murder imminent), as well as the more usual physical geography of forests and hills, while ships may be seen in the surrounding ocean. Beneath the map is an image of a camel.
