"The World in Hemispheres with other projections", Mitchell, Samuel Augustus
Period: 1860 (dated)
Color: Hand Color
13 x 11.2 inches
33 x 28.4 cm
A lovely double hemisphere map with Mitchell's unique floral border and beautiful hand coloring. Below the world map are three smaller maps: The World on a Polar Projection; North Polar Region; Land and Water Hemispheres. A comparative diagram of the world's rivers is shown above the maps with the note "Sea of Uniamezi Probable Source of the Nile".
Couple of tiny spots in map, but overall very good.
