An uncommon double hemisphere map with polar hemisphere and other diagrams surrounding the map. CALIFORNIA IS AN ISLAND. Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand have only partial coastlines and there is a land mass title 'Terre Esonis' stretching between eastern Asia and North America. The map is very detailed with hundreds of place names and a key to major discoveries. Very sharp impression and fine later coloring combine to make this an excellent example of this map. Issued folded, now pressed and ready for framing.


Condition: A+

Estimate: $1,900 - $2,100
