"Mappe Monde"

Published by Le Rouge, 1748

This wonderful reproduction of the originally hand-colored copperplate engraving of the world was published in 1748 by French Cartographer, George Le Rouge. Embellished with a colourful cartouche, the border surrounding this double hemisphere map is beautifully decorated with peoples of the world.

The Pacific Coast of North America is shrouded in mystery, although California is correctly identified as part of the mainland and not an island, and the West, which was yet to be fully explored is lacking definition.

Also of note is the designation of Australia, New Guinea, and Tasmania as the continent of Australia or "Nouvelle Hollande."
