Interesting North Polar projection published by John Senex with numerous rhumb lines and four compass roses. There is only rudimentary detail shown along the coastlines. Notations give dates of discovery of Greenland, of continents and the islands. The unusual projection is attributed in the title page of the atlas to Edmund Halley. An uncommon and intriguing chart.
