A Rare & Very Important World Map

This splendid Globe Terrestre by J.B. Nolin is one of the finest large-scale world maps to be produced and is a fitting bridge between the geographical and artistic skills of the seventeenth century and the century to come. The twin hemispheres and their decorative surround are engraved on four sheets with further strips comprising a broad pictorial border and, at the bottom, architectural columns of text.  —Rodney Shirley
