Mappe-Monde 1786 Didier Robert de Vaugondy Antique World Map
Mappe Monde suivant la projection des cartes reduites. Original antique copperplate-engraved 1778 map by Robert de Vaugondy on Mercator's Projection, with original outline color showing the areas associated with the four major religions of the world: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Paganism. The attractive cartography reflects the most recent discoveries of the late 18th century explorers. Australia is outlined in full, including an attached Tasmania, as is New Zealand.

In North America, there is scant detail between Hudson Bay, marked as an English possession, and the Pacific Coast, where a printed note alludes to Russian discoveries. The map was engraved by E. Dussy and published by Fortin in Nouvel Atlas Portatif, Paris, 1778. Great condition (see pictures) original hand color, no text on verso. 16.5" x 11.25".
