Copperplate impression represents the world in two hemispheres, east and west. The image of North America is quite primitive. The area surrounding Australia, Nouvelle Hollande, and the associated islands is also largely unexplored. This is a very interesting old map.
Hand colored in outline and single fold as issued. Good condition, minor soiling with separation on lower center fold resulting in no image loss. Measures 10 1/2 x 17 inches. THIS IS NOT A REPRODUCTION!
