Rare large format map of the Southern Hemisphere by Tranquillo Mollo, based upon the work of J.A. Ecker. The map illustrates the lack of knowledge of the Antarctica, with only very small parts charted, including several discovery notes. Tasmania is still attached to Neu Holland, which has a still tentative coastline. The Sandwich Islands are shown in nice detail, as is New Zealand and the South Pacific islands. Extensive notes on early discoveries throughout the map. A marvelous rare large format map by Tranquillo Mollo. The matching Nothern Hemisphere map is item 8539. $795.00 for the pair.
