Interesting hemispheric map centered on the Friendly Islands. Includes New Holland, New Zealand, East Indies and much of Oceania. Comment notes that the map’s "scale only measures with sufficient accuracy distances in the direction of the Meridians." Notation near the pole of "Innumerable Ice Islands." Details the routes of numerous explorers.
Very light toning, and light offsetting around hemisphere, else very good with nice coloring.
