Notes

This highly decorative map highlights the continent of North and South America, featuring California as an island, as well as the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans. It also includes Nouvelle Hollande [i.e. Australia] and Nouvelle Guinea [i.e. New Guinea], both distortedly represented, with a portion of South-East as well as the west coast of Africa. In particular, note that the 'Solomon Islands' are depicted next to Carpentaria which extends into Terre de Quir and joins 'Nouvelle Zelande'. The sea tracks of explorers are included. The map also includes many vignettes, annotations and some insets. Relief is shown pictorially.
