Rare and unusual pair of polar projections of the World on the Paris Horizon. The Southern Hemisphere is shown extending from Australia and SE Asia to the southern tip of South America, with a very distinctive (if completely fanciful) coastline for Antarctica. The Northern Hemipshere is shown extending from the Northeast Passage and the North Pole across to much of North America, Europe, Africa and most of Asia. A fascinating pair of projection from a rare geographical work published by Moullart-Sanson.
