Fine set of six untitled maps making up the world. The first four are maps on Mercator's projection starting with Africa, the Americas, the Pacific and Asia. The other two are polar projections. All with great detail and keyboard style borders. The map of the Americas shows an INDEPENDENT TEXAS. A very interesting and attractive set.
