This attractive small double hemisphere map features the island of California, a large landmass in Antarctica, and a partially mapped Australia. The continents are simply outlined with major rivers and lakes delineated. In North America there is a large, ill-defined body of water in the Great Lakes region. In the North Pacific the T. de Jesso coastline stretches between Asia and North America. The Great Wall is shown in China.
Issued folding on watermarked paper with a couple unobtrusive spots.
