This map belongs to Blaeu's set of maps of the four continents. The maps are reductions of Blaeu's 1608 wall maps. The title of the map of Asia appears in a cartouche, flanked by nomads, in the upper left. In the lower right is a reference to the ten-year privilege.
The map is framed on both sides by five costumed Asian figures. Along the upper edge runs a decorative border with nine Asian towns in oval frames.
These decorative strips are based entirely on border decorations from Blaeu's 1608 wall map of Asia. The map image is also a reduction of this wall map.
