Rare late edition of Tirion's map of the Northern Hemisphere and North Pole, which shows the Northeast Passage, but no definite Northwest Passage.
California is shown as an Island, along with the River systems of North America. Nice detail in the Polar regions, especially New Denmark and Greenland and in Asia and Europe. A scarce Italian example of this decorative map.
Isaak Tirion was a prominent Dutch publisher based in Amsterdam in the eighteenth century. He is best known for historical works that included prints showing scenes from around the world. He also produced maps, such as those in the Nieuwe Hand-Atlas of 1744.
