This handsome small world map depicts California as an island, with the Iesso als Ieco landmass stretching nearly to Japan. It is based on Sanson's pocket atlas map and includes a considerable amount of information for such a small map. At the South Pole there are still remnants of Terre Magellanique Australe et Incogneue which nearly connects with a partial coastline of New Zealand. New Guinea is shown in approximately its correct position. The map also shows the short-lived N. Danemarck west of Hudson Bay.
A nice impression issued folding with faint stains along the right edge.
