An attractive and unusual cartographic game - a double hemisphere world map is set within a coiled track of 78 numbered spaces, presumably each correlating to a list of geographical facts to be learnt - teaching as amusement! The plate appeared in a "Dictionnaire Des Jeux" and is interesting for the details on the map where Australia and New Zealand are shown in a rather confused, pre-Cook form.
