Scope and content
Vignettes of indigenous peoples representing Asia, America, Europe and Africa surround this well-engraved double hemisphere map. Attractive title cartouche rests between the hemispheres. The northwest coast of North America is noted as Parts Undiscovered. Australia is misshapen and connected to Van Diemens Land with indistinct eastern and southern coastlines. New Zealand is mapped only on the west coast with no evidence of two islands. Crosshatched areas locate and show direction of trade winds.
Original can be viewed in the presence o
f an early cartographic archivist. Microfiche version is open.
