Mappe - Monde Divisee en ses quatre Parties
A beautiful little double hemispheric map of the world, showing the best of what was known. Well defined continental coasts are all very familiar to what we know today, until you encounter the Pacific coast of North America. Not only is there a large Sea of the West, but many islands and inlets that perhaps allude to a Northwest Passage, but also has some strange similarity to the yet to be mapped Alaskan coast. New Holland (Australia) is distorted with a massive wide land bridge connecting Tasmania to Australia and New Guinea.
