Size : 14.2 x 21.1 inches. / 36.0 x 53.5 cm.

Description :A large map of the world in two hemispheres, east and west, showing the climatic zones. The geographic content is relegated to the background, placing emphasis on the grid of parallels and meridians, along with the equator, tropics of cancer and Capricorn, polar circles, and ecliptic (with signs of the zodiac).
In the northern half of the eastern hemisphere six lines are running from the equator at the centre of the hemisphere to the polar region." A compass rose appears at top centre, and a key to the signs of the zodiac above the eastern hemisphere. The text labels the various lines and circles, indicates the climatic zones, and defines several terms (such as "antipodes").
The map was first issued by Nicolas Sanson I (d'Abbeville), dated 1659, in his first world atlas, Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du monde, 1658 (Pastoureau, Sanson V A, map 3).
It continued to appear in later editions of the atlas, but "chez l'autheur" remained in the imprint even when the plate was revised after Sanson's death in 1667.
The map in its present state (dated 1690 and with the address "aux Galleries du Louvre") probably appeared in the 1692 edition (Pastoureau, Sanson V H, contents not itemized), published by Sanson's sons with the"aux Galleries du Louvre" address.
With the texts in the two hemispheres highlighted in green, yellow, red and brown, and with a few pencil annotations.
A good copy of this unusual map of the world's climatic zones.
Pastoureau, Sanson V A, map 3 & V D map 3 (dated 1659), IKAR (2 copies, dated 1659 & 1681).
