Description

Finely colored example of Allard's rare Double Hemisphere map of the World.

The map is embellished with allegorical scenes and a pair of map showing the Northern and Southern Polar Regions.

California is shown as an island on the Briggs Model, with no Northeast Coast beyond the Straits of Anian. A single open Great Lake is shown, consistent with Jan Jansson's map of North America from 1636. South America is mis-projected and shown far wider than its actual shape.

Australia and New Zealand reflect the recent discoveries of Abel Tasman.

A finely colored example of this rare map.

Condition Description
Restorations in the margins, including several repaired tears just entering the printed image (mostly at the bottom of the map) and several areas where the blank margins and small parts of the printed image have been expertly reinstated.
