    An almost archetypal antique map of the world showing the best of what was known for the time but with some essential conceptions that capture people's curiosity. Shows California as a well articulated island, with numerous placenames. Includes the best of what was known for the islands of the Pacific and Indian Ocean's but with little substance. Includes polar projections at top and bottom that give an honest treatment of these frontiers. Surrounded with a beautiful cartouche.

    Condition is very good with some old repairs and reconstruction essentially to the top titling and the left and right edges.. Image size is approximately 18.5 x 22.25 (inches)
