Mappe-Monde. 

(Old Maps, 19th Century Maps, World Maps, North America, Alaska, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia).

Issued 1809, Paris.

Uncommon/ scarce early 19th century engraved map with attractive hand color.

Note the distorted north west region of America which is a wild mis-representation of Alaska. Note the outline shape of Australia as well which is also distorted showing Van Diemens island attached to the continent.

Remains a nice looking example with a pleasing age patina. Any age flaws mostly minor and easy to overlook or forgive.

Original fold lines as issued.
