Beautifully engraved map on a north polar projection showing the first
circumnavigation of the world by Magellan's ship, Victoria. Along the voyage track are
various dates, showing the ship's progress. California is an island. The coastlines of
New Guinea and Oceania are only vaguely understood, with Australia's Carpentaria
Bay attached to New Guinea, and an indistinct New Zealand. Includes a pronounced
depiction of California as an island.
Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 9.25 x 14 (inches).
