Title : Planisphere Terrestre Suivant les nouvelle Observations des Astronomes Dressee et presente Roy Tres Chretien par Mr. Cassini....

Description :Karpinski considers this the first strictly scientific map of the world. This was the first map to set standard longitudes for known places based on scientific calculations.
Beyond its sheer beauty, this North Polar projection or azimuthal, equi-distant world map represents an important step in the history of mapping. Despite cartographic advances, California still appears as an island. Based on the famous 1696 Planisphere by Jacques Cassini, the map was developed from data collected at many observatories in such distant places as Malacca, Nanking and Guadeloupe. As the information was collected and sent to Paris, it was transferred to a gigantic planisphere. Cassini was highly trained and disciplined scientist, a skilled astronomer, and a geodesist.
This spectacular adaptation of the map by Van der Aa is perhaps the most elegantly engraved of the California as an island maps.
Condition : Moderately age toned with some browning, esp. at margins. Overall a fine example except for two significant tears affecting upper left and lower right cartouches at corners, professionally repaired and strengthened with no loss.
