Zoogeographic world map, included in Atlas Geográfico Universal, showing Alfred Russel Wallace's six zoological regions.

The zoological boundary between Asia and Australia came to be known as the Wallace Line, named by T.H. Huxley after Wallace proposed his theory in 1859. The line is shown here between Borneo and Celebes, east of Bali, and south of Mindanao.

The map includes a cross-section of faunal distribution by elevation in the lower right corner.

The cartouche in the upper left includes a rather anthropomorphic rendering of a bear holding the title.

Condition Description
Minor centerfold toning. Short closed tear in bottom margin to left of centerfold. Separation at top and bottom of centerfold, the latter just entering the neatline.
