Small double hemisphere world map with cartography typical of the late 18th century. The spheres are surrounded in dense engraving depicting the heavens and the earth with an erupting volcano, water spouts, whirlpools and fortifications.
Slight toning on centerfold with some minor soil in blank margins, still very good.
