First is a double hemisphere that measures approximately 10.5 x 6.5". It is on a full sheet with generous margins. The map was published in Buffon's Histoire Naturelle. The latter is an anonymous chart of the south pole. It measures approximately 5.5 x 6" and also has original margins. Two nice charts that show explorers' routes and geographical understanding of the area at the time.
Very light toning along folds in former and few spots outside of hemisphere in latter. Both with original outline coloring.
