An interesting and uncommon double hemisphere World map. The map was published without a title and has the faint imprint of engraver Mortin / Merton? who we have been unable to trace. However we do know the map appeared in a small students volume "Rudimenta Historica, Sive Brevis, facilisque Methodus ..." for the school of the Jesuit Society. The map is not as up-to-date as should be but shows cartography typical of the early part of the eighteenth century - California appears as an island, and Australia and New Zealand are in post-Tasman form. An amusing small map.
