Numerous islands of Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia are noted. Five insets are features along the bottom border of the map. These include an inset of New South Wales, Australia, showing gold locations, New Caledonia, Martinique Island, Tahiti and the Gambier Archipelago.The map shows extraordinary detail throughout noting European possessions in Australia and southeast Asia, cities, islands, rivers, lakes, mountains, oceans and ocean currents, sea routes of explorers and a host of other geographical, topographical and physical features.
