A very fine 17th century double-hemisphere world map, with two further spheres in the cusps showing the two poles.

The side panels contain an extensive gazetteer, with a lettered key relating to the longitude and latitude grid. Carel Allard (1648-c.1706) did not issue an atlas until 1696 by which time he had replaced this map. SHIRLEY: 517, with a rarity rating of 'S' for scarce; however he does not mention these side panels.
