A beautifully restored map of the world from 1642 originally hand coloured to define continents. 

A Double hemisphere hand coloured map of the world. Embellished with allegorical spandrel vignettes representing celestial hemispheres, north and south poles, sailing ships and sea monsters.

Interestingly this map shows North America extending to Japan, Japan shown as a oddly shaped island and it also shows Great wall of China.

This Map includes detail notations from Marco Polo, most notably the place name Beach in 'Terra Australis Incognita'. Relief shown pictorially.
