This lovely, small map of the Americas prominently features the island of California with a flat northern coastline. In the Pacific Ocean only the western coastline of New Zealand is mapped, and Japan includes an outsized Hokkaido (Eso). Many tiny ships dot the seas, while Native Americans and Europeans surround the title cartouche.

A nice impression on a sheet with folds as issued and some irregular toning. The margins have a couple of small wormholes, well away from the map.
