Mr. Wauthier. “A Plain Map for the Geographical Game of Asia, America, Africa and the New Discovered Islands…”
London, 1797. ca. 13 x 15. Engraving. Original outline color. Some creases, but overall very good condition.
A world map presented in a "Plain Map or Emblematic Chart for the Geographical Game" and drawn "According to the Method of the Abbé Gaultier By Mr. Wauthier his Pupil." This map is intended for some sort of educational "game," and so while the major political divisions and geographic features are indicated, there are no words other than those in the title cartouche. The outline of the continents, the rivers and lakes, and the borders and mountains, are shown with the best information available, and the lack of labels gives the maps a most interesting appearance. We also have for sale three other maps from this set: Africa, Asia & Europe.
