Decorative double hemisphere map of the World, intended to illustrate the successes of the Dutch East India and Dutch West India Companies throughout the world.

Shows an incomplete Australia and New Zealand, along with California as an Island and a badly mis-projected Japan. The west coast of America extends due west toward Asia, one of the predominating theories of the 17th and early 18th Centuries. Two decorative sailing ships, several Lions and other embellishments.

A finely engraved map from Chatelain's monumental 7 volume Atlas Historique, one of the most famous and prolific works of the early 18th Century.

Henri Abraham Chatelain (1684-1743) was a Huguenot pastor of Parisian origins. Chatelain proved a successful businessman, creating lucrative networks in London, The Hague, and then Amsterdam. He is most well known for the Atlas Historique, published in seven volumes between 1705 and 1720. This encyclopedic work was devoted to the history and genealogy of the continents, discussing such topics as geography, cosmography, topography, heraldry, and ethnography. Published thanks to a partnership between Henri, his father, Zacharie, and his younger brother, also Zacharie, the text was contributed to by Nicolas Gueudeville, a French geographer. The maps were by Henri, largely after the work of Guillaume Delisle, and they offered the general reader a window into the emerging world of the eighteenth century.
