This thematic map was created to show how the world was divided by either religion, skin color, or facial features, depending on how the map was colored. This example is colored to show the world divided by religion: Judaism, Christianity, Paganism, and Muslim. Considering the scale, there is good detail of major place names, watershed, and islands of the world. The map has been updated to illustrate the recent discoveries of Cook, La Perouse, Vancouver, and Mackenzie. Notations in the Arctic discuss Erik the Red's discovery of Greenland and Barentz's discovery of Spitsbergen in 1596, and there is good detail of the islands of the Pacific. Title cartouche notes that Delamarche is the successor to Robert de Vaugondy. Engraved by Dien.
Condition Description: A crisp impression on a clean, bright sheet with a circular watermark.
