A single hemisphere with the North Pole at its centre by Emanuel Bowen, one of the most prolific cartographic figures in England in the mid-eighteenth century. Two passages of text (in English) appear in the lower parts of the page. Geographic detail extends southwards to include the British Isles and northern Europe, Hudson's Bay in North America and the southern tip of Kamchatka in Asia.
