Very unusual chart illustrating the basic principles of geography. The main map is a double hemisphere, without landmasses, showing lines of latitude and longitude, climate zones, etc. The spheres are surrounded by several smaller diagrams and tables.
Lovely old color, which is rare for Coronelli charts. Very faint toning along fold, else very good.
