East & West Hemispheres World Map 1808 by Historic Urban Plans
A lovely double hemisphere world map issued during the era of early scientific discovery came from the London firm of Laurie and Whittle. It records all the voyages of Captain Cook whose explorations in the Pacific provided valuable new information for chartmakers throughout the world. The delicate color washes and darker outlines used to distinguish countries and continents enhance the beauty of this impressive engraving. Nice antique map reproduction ideal for home decor!
