This map of the world is believed to have been engraved by Herman Moll circa 1700. After this edition there were a number of adaptations of the plate including one example in the National Library of Australia with the date 1703 engraved just below the title and another example with the track of William Dampier inserted, most likely engraved circa 1705.

Significant points regarding this map are the depiction of Australia without an east coast and also Calafornia shown as an Island.
