Very nice map with California as an Island. Northwestern North America and northeast Asia are blank and unmapped. Above the hemispheres is a north polar projection. The bottom is filled with characterizations representing the continents and other interesting allegorical scenes. Pearson and Murphy praise this map as an early thematic map, with arrows depicting the trade winds and their direction. Long note at top discuss trade winds and monsoons and incorporates a list of the zodiac signs.
