A near fine example of this scarce world map from Doppelmayr's Celestial Atlas, featuring California as an Island, an incomplete Eastern & Southern coast of Australia, incomplete New Zealand and Northwest Passage. The map is embellished with a large decorative allegorical cartouche. The double hemispheres are surrounded by celestial phenomena, including a solar and lunar eclipse and 3 groups of Cherubs making astronomical observations using the latest astronomical tools. The map includes a set of tables showing the longitude, latitude, Celestial Observationas and eclipse information for the major cities and islands around the world. A fascinating blend of science and decorative cartography, splendidly engraved in the style of the Homann family.
