    This delicately engraved double hemisphere world map features the island of California and a Northwest Passage. There is little interior detail with only major nations named. Ter. de Jesso appears off the east coast of Asia, Australia is incomplete and still attached to New Guinea, only the west coast of New Zealand appears, and there is still a partial coastline for Terres Australes. Decorative title cartouche and French text surrounds the map.

Condition Description: A clean, bright example with original color with minor refreshing. There are several tiny spots and a couple of tiny tears at top left that have been professionally repaired.

Ref: Mickwitz & Miekkavaara #43-2.
