This map in double hemisphere shows correspondences between the terrestrial climate zones and the latitudes and meridians. It shows California as an island and Korea as an island. Nicolas Sanson d'Abbeville was one of the first geograph to realise a double hemisphere map.

Born in Abbeville, active from 1627. Nicolas Sanson d'Abbeville was to bring about the rise of French cartography, although the fierce competition of the Dutch would last until the end of the century. His success was partly owing to the partnership with the publisher Pierre Mariette. In 1657 Pierre Mariette died, however his son, also named Pierre, co-published Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde the following year. It was the first folio French produced world atlas. Edition: 1st Edition, Paris, chez Pierre Mariette rue S.
