Condition Rating

An elegant world map designed with the prime meridian through Paris. The hemispheres are rotated through 45 degrees - an unusual projection for a world map based on work of the French Academie Royale des Sciences.
Interesting features include a "Mer de L'Ouest" or "Sea of the West". Paris is located at the center of the hemisphere, so that Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and most of South America appear together: the left sphere contains Patagonia, Australia and the East Indian Islands. The two halves are named Hemisphere Maritime and Hemisphere Terrestre. Australia and New Zealand are only shown partially and the erroneous 'Mer de L'Ouest' appears in northwest America, with a large 'I. Nouvelle' just south of the Bering Straits. Jesso, north of Japan, is part of mainland Asia. The map is of interest for the name of the sea between Korea and Japan, here called "Mer de Corée".
The map was prepared by the Venetian cartographer and publisher François (Père) Santini and first published in Santini's 'Atlas Universel dresse sur les meuilleures cartes modernes 1776.'
Santini collaborated with Janvier and gives credit to him on most of his maps. The atlas is effectively an Italian copy of the Robert de Vaugondy 'Atlas Universel'.
