Description

This small,hand colored map displays several interesting cartographic myths that were prevalent at the turn of the 18th century. The western hemisphere presents the island of California and a partial outline of Ter de Iesso (Hokkaido) that reaches almost to North America. Australia, New Zealand and the islands of the South Pacific are partially mapped and misshapen, and there is still a huge southern continent labeled Terres Antarctiques. Engraved by M. Demasso
