An attractive and interesting map, probably the centrepiece cut from a damaged letterpress atlas titlepage. With the north pole at its centre, the map extends to the equator showing, most notably a very large supposed landmass across the North Pacific, California as an Island, North America, Asia and Europe. With a radiant sun at lower left corner, the earth is shaded to illustrate the differential of day and night.
