Extremely interesting map with a large map of the Eastern Hemisphere, into which is inset a smaller Western Hemisphere with the ISLAND OF CALIFORNIA. Below the map are seven vignettes depicting the seven wonders of the Ancient World. The entire map is surrounded by tables of French text.
Tiny bit of insignificant foxing and short split on top centerfold, closed with archival tape. Overall very good.
