Uncommon and very unusual chart illustrating the basic principles of geography. The main map is a double hemisphere, without landmasses, showing equator, lines of latitude and longitude, climate zones, etc. Several smaller diagrams and tables surround the spheres.
Beautiful impression and bright color with watermark. Soft crease along centerfold, marginal tear just touching neatline with sound repair.
