Very unusual map of the ancient world filled with figures illustrating the major events in the history of the world. The map is surrounded on three sides with German text containing 217 historical entries beginning with events from the Old Testament and ending in 1733. At bottom is a small double hemisphere world map and two solar system diagrams.
Tiny separations on folds in upper margins, closed with framer's tape.
