The World in Hemispheres with Other Projections


A fascinating collection of hemisphere maps on a single page from the 1870 edition of Mitchell's popular New General Atlas of the world. Framed by the vine motif border typical of Mitchell maps of the mid-1860s to 1881, the page features maps of the Western and Eastern Hemispheres and the North Polar Region, the World on a Polar Projection, and Land & Water Hemispheres. Wedged on top of the main hemisphere maps are graphic charts comparing the lengths of the world's major rivers.
