This map is one of two maps of the western hemisphere printed on the same sheet. These maps were issued to show the difference between French and Dutch cartography. This map is based on Hondius and other Dutch cartographers and shows the island of California. Japan is indicated as the Land von Jesso and in the south pacific numerous islands are shown along with the coast line of New Zealand.
