Planisphere Representant Toute L'Entendu Du Monde ... : L. Renard / J. Elwe

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An interesting and decorative world planisphere, derived from Jacques Cassini's projection published in 1696, with the North Pole at its centre. The planisphere is held on the broad shoulders and stone pillar of Atlas, a Titan. Geographically the map combines some points of note - Australia is shown extending across sixty degrees so that the eastern end lies north of New Zealand, California is shown as an island (a rather late depiction) and even the Great Wall of China is visible. The map was first published by Louis Renard in 1715 in his "Atlas De La Navigation Et Du Commerce ...". However, this example bears no imprint and is thus from Elwe's 1792 "Atlas ...". With attractive original wash colour and one light surface stain (in the Indian Ocean), this map is overall fine.
