Uncommon double hemisphere map decorated with clouds at the top and allegorical representations of the continents along the bottom. California is shown as an island with an incomplete coastline in the Pacific Northwest. The Great Lakes do not yet appear but there is a large St. Lawrence River. T. de Iesso stretches between Asia and North America. In the southern hemisphere, there is a bit of Il. Zelande near and almost connecting to the large T. Magellanique Aust. et Incongneve, and Australia (Nouv. Hollande) is only partly mapped.
This is a smaller version of a map by Jan Luyts (Shirley #553), published in Baron Pufendorf’s “Introduction a l’Histoire Generale et Political, de l’Universe” in 1743.
