Mappe-Monde Divisee en ses Quatre Parties.

(Old Maps, 18th Century Maps, World Maps, Eastern Hemisphere, Western Hemisphere, North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia).

Issued 1769, Paris.

Late 18th century engraved map with attractive hand color.

Of note for the fantastical depiction of the Northwest coastal area of North America including discovery by Russians note and a series of islands. Note the eastern coast line of Australia as well, still attached in the south to Van Diemen's island. A partial coastline of New Zealand is seen at lower left.

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.
