A large and interesting World map, centred on the Pacific, and highlighting sea communications across the world. The map also indicates major sea currents and, by a coloured key, the territorial claims of European Powers around the globe. Land detail is set against a grey-wash sea which displays uncertain coastlines for the unknown Arctic and Antarctic regions.
