Nova Orbis Tabula, Ad Usum Serenissimi Burgundiae Ducis ... : A-H.Jaillot

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A finely engraved and large double hemisphere world map set against a distinctive and elaborate surround. Alexis-Hubert Jaillot's detailed map gives a good summary of turn-of-the-century geography with California as an Island, remnants of the Great Southern Continent and and Australian and New Zealand coastlines after Tasman. The spheres are surrounded by large decorative figures representing aspects of governance, the arts and each continent. This example is well printed and is of the second state - lacking the date normally present.
