Charming small double-hemisphere map with the peninsular form for California and a huge Terra Australis Incognita. The corners are decorated with the female representations of the four continents. Tucked between the cusp at bottom is the figure of Atlas holding the world on his shoulders, surrounded by wind heads and fire.
