    A bold copperplate engraved map of the world that shows the latest information known and set in a beautiful decorative surrounding cartouche. There are some interesting depictions of Australia which is implied to be connected to Papua New Guinea. But perhaps most interesting is the strong depiction of California being an island, set just off the western coast of North America. A attractive gem of a decorative world map

    Condition is very good with one almost imperceivable repair to a centerfold tear. Image size is 14 X 18.25 (inches)
