A very fine, large copper engraving of a pair of globes. The terrestrial globe most prominently features Africa, and identifies Europe, North and South America, and a few islands in the Atlantic. The celestial globe is centered on Gemini and Hercules. A ribbon-style banner contains the title, and Latin and German explanatory text panels are included below the globes.
Toned paper with some soiling, light, scattered foxing, and several damp stains. All four margins have been extended with old paper. A tear in top margin extends 1" into map image.
