Nice pair of Western and Eastern Hemisphere maps. The map of the Americas shows California as an island with an indented northern coastline. The large Land von Jesso reaches across from Asia to the Pacific Northwest. In the Eastern Hemisphere, a portion of Australia's coast appears, and a large amorphous coastline is shown around the South Pole. Third state without medallions and with the change in the title from Hollandischer to Frantzosischer.
