Planisphere, Ou Carte Generale Du Monde ... : P. Du Val

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This is the third state, dated 1676, of Pierre Du Val's double-hemisphere map of the world that was first published in "Cartes De Geographie ...". The hemispheres show an island California, a vastly distorted Australia, partial outlines for New Zealand and Tasmania, and a large "Terre De Yesso" in the North Pacific. The map eschews decoration, as is typical for French maps of the period. However, around the central hemispheres there are diagrams showing the compass points, the winds and planetary orbits, as well as a small depiction of a terrestrial globe and an armillary sphere in the lower corners of the map. Minor expert restoration to centrefold split and marginal tears.
