A finely rendered hemispheric map that is among the most decorative maps produced in the 19th Century. It is decorated with numerous beautiful vignettes by Warren, featuring whales, natives, and indigenous animals, all surrounded by a fancy vine-style border. The map extends to include New Zealand and the Solomon Islands in the Pacific, and the Cape Verde Islands in the Atlantic. Alaska is Russian America, New California occupies all the west coast, and the coast of Antarctica is somewhat defined.
