Charming small double-hemisphere map with the peninsular form for California and a northwest coastline that extends to include Quivira and Anian. A huge Terra Australis Incognita is only partially delineated and incorporates Hollandia Nova. The western hemisphere features few place names, yet numerous spurious rivers.
