An attractive double-hemisphere map of the world inset with small depictions of the polar regions and a triangular diagram comparing the sizes of the five continents. The map is color-coded to show colonial possessions, and some partial coastlines are mapped in Antarctica. Surrounding the map is an interesting depiction of the heights of 74 mountains keyed to a table below.
There is some minor staining along the centerfold and sheet edges. A separation occupying the entire lower centerfold has been closed on verso with archival materials.
