An attractive double-hemispherical map of the world inset with small depictions of the polar regions and a triangular diagram comparing the sizes of the five continents. Surrounding the map is an interesting depiction of the heights of 74 mountains keyed to the table below. Texas is shown as independent, and some partial coastlines are mapped in Antarctica.
A couple minor marginal tears, not affecting the map. There is a small spot below the polar inset.
