This authentic antique map in Dutch on thick, heavy paper is by cartographer O. Lindemann. Published in 1775, it depicts all the continents and oceans and some major rivers, and details the shoreline of each with ports and major cities. California is shown as an island off the southwest coast of America.

Continents are named as are countries and territories. A fan-shaped polar projection in the lower left quadrant features northern and polar regions of the world that are not featured in the map proper.

Interestingly, the map minutely describes and details trade winds, magnetic variations, and areas of monsoons and the directions in which they progress. The Prime Meridian and Equator are clearly delineated.

Condition: This map is in A condition with folds as published. Minor offsetting but a sharp impression on otherwise clean paper with wide margins on all sides.
