Description

A good example of La Perouse's double hemisphere map of the World, which accompanied George Louis Leclerc Buffon's Histoire naturelle, generale et particulare, a monumental multi-volume treatise first published at the end of the 18th Century.

Includes a conjectural Australia, good treatment of New Zealand after Cook, detailed treatment of the NW Coast of America, post-dating the voyages of Cook, but pre-dating Vancouver, with nice detail in the Arctic Circle.

Condition Description
A bit toned at the folds, one short fold split and some offsetting, but still a good example of this scarce map.
