An interesting pair of maps each with the same title, except for the final line which defines the differences between the maps. The one on the left shows the world per French cartographers, while the other depicts the Dutch version. Both show CALIFORNIA IS AN ISLAND, but there are many subtle differences in the maps. A fascinating comparison between the two important schools of the period. The pair.
