(World) A new Projection of the Western


  • ~Catalog 56~
  • A new Projection of the Western Hemisphere of the Earth on a Plane (shewing the proportions of its several parts nearly as on a Globe).

    This is a projection attempting to show the parts of the globe as near as possible to actual relative size. It does this by curving the equator up and down. On the western Hemisphere sheet the space created is filled with parts of the West Indies in enlarged size but in the Eastern Hemisphere this space is not used. The map is odd to our eyes but it does have an interesting conjectural Alaska and Australia.

    Condition is good with off setting and marginal repairs. Both maps image size is approximately 9.5 x 9 (inches)
