Lovely map of Eastern Hemisphere on Mercator projection. Early hand color distinguishes political boundaries of the time, in a rather odd way with Persie and Mogol the same for instance. New Guinea connected to an indefinite Australia. West coast of New Zealand noted. Turkey in Europe, large German/Poland extent. An indefinite "Kompagnies Land" appears east of Jesso. Published in Amsterdam c.1753.
Folds as issued. Marginal fold tear at lower center not reaching engraved image. Colors and paper bright.
