Very unusual chart illustrating the basic principles of geography. The main map is a double hemisphere without landmasses, showing lines of latitude and longitude, climate zones, etc. The spheres are surrounded by several smaller diagrams and tables, making for a very handsome presentation.
Old color. Minor toning on centerfold.
