    A beautiful and rare map of the early world which is based off of Waldseemuller and Apian, and is shown through a "heart-shaped" projection. Shows South America, thanks to Magellan's information and includes a crude outline for North America. Notes continental names and some nations. A massive land bridge reaches down from southeast Asia to connect to what appears to be the western coast of Australia.

    Condition is very good with large margins. Image size of the map is 5 x 6.75 on a sheet with text with an overall size of 15.5 x 9.5 (inches).
