Printed from two separate plates, de Fer's fascinating world map on a Mercator projection depicts California prominently as an island, with Greenland connected to North America and the latter's northwest regions hidden by the elaborate title cartouche. Only a few segments of the coasts of Australia ("Terre de Diemens") and New Zealand are shown. Also included are circumnavigation and East and West Indian trade routes.
