An attractive and interesting double hemisphere world map engraved, for a small geographical dictionary, by Thomas Jefferys. The map is decorated with figures and scenes in each corner with the title in an elaborate cartouche backed by a shaded background. Cartographic detail of interest is the correct outline for the two New Zealand islands whereas the Australian coast shows the exaggerated east coast attached to Van Diemen's Land, more commonly associated with French maps of the time, with no reference to Cook's discoveries.
