'The World: A New and Correct Map laid down & described according to the latest discoveries, to which is added and Explanation of all these Lines (as the Equator, Ecliptic, Tropiks, Meridians &c.) used in describing this & all other Maps of the World & terrestrial Globes...' Printed & sold by H: Overton & I: Hoole.
Copper-engraved double-hemisphere map of the world, hand-coloured in outline; surrounded with various depictions of the solar system & planets, blocks of engraved text, etc. Engraved by Sutton Nichols.

A very rare map of the world, with California an island.
The West is "laid down according to the Baron Lahontan's discoveries," and most of the Arctic is labeled "Parts Unknown." In northeastern Asia, Iesso (Hokkaido) is shown to be part of Siberia with Companys Land lying just offshore. Only the western and northern coasts, and a bit of Diemens Land, are shown in Australia.

The trade winds are shown, and the text surrounding the map has information on navigation, determining longitude and latitude, climate, etc.
There are small surface maps of Mars, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, the Moon, and the Sun, and a diagram of "The Solar System according to the Newtonian Philosophy."

References: World, British Museum Cat, p 545 with date [1738]; but title begins with A New and Correct Map of the world; this is probably the map J. Potter had in list of 2/94, apparently an earlier issue without Houle's name. The map is similar but with more text on map and the surrounding material is different, though some of the diagrams are the same.
Reference: Armitage / Baynton-Williams 'The World At Their Fingertips' - map 12.
