Word map in double hemisphere. In centre two smaller hemispheres of the north and south pole are shown. Two interesting diagrams depict the earth as it would be seen from space. North America is still blank above California and Hudson Bay is open-ended in the north-west corner. The map was compiled by J.M. Haas, Professor of Mathematics at Wittenberg. Includes incomplete Australia and New Zealand, fanciful NW Coast of America based upon the early Russian explorations, and mythical images of the Poles.
Very decorative title cartouches in upper left hand right hand corner containing the titles, one in Latin and the other French.
