This simple double hemisphere world map presents California as an island. Australia and parts of the Antarctic (Terre Australe et Magelanique) are shown with lightly engraved partial coastlines. Dotted lines indicate political divisions, but there are no place or country names.

The map is lightly soiled and trimmed to just outside the neatlines and remargined with heavier paper. Backed with Japanese tissue to repair centerfold separations at top and bottom.
