Brion De La Tour 480 x 280 mmD1 / M175 / I100Very good condition. Original paper crinkling. Repair to small hole inside map area. Text adheared to map as usual.

One of a number of variations of this map. The eastern hemisphere depicts Australia with the classic exaggerated eastern coastline, which was especially used by the French in the pre-Cook era. The map is surrounded by cherubs and decorative borders and as usual has information attached on either side. This is a very attractive depiction of the hemisphere, which is typical of Brion's work.
