A very interesting map with vertical orientation showing twin polar projections. The South Pole shows only Tierra del Fuego. The North Pole shows 'Anian' just above the top part of an INSULAR CALIFORNIA. The spheres are surrounded by finely engraved clouds and wind gods.
Very attractive coloring. Minor foxing in margins.
