Designed for a geographical game created by Gautltier, this map includes geographical information and place names. The arctic areas show unknown and open ended land masses with Antarctica virtually unknown other than a short line of coastline labeled South Victoria. A rarely seen and extremely handsome double hemispheric map.
Beautiful example with dark, early impression and very fine original color.
