World Map 1696 is a double hemisphere map, surrounded by additional hemispheric projections, one of the earliest maps to abandon the baroque style of the 17th Century for a more scientific appearance. Traditional double hemisphere, plus eight other spheres, showing the world in various orientations.
Striking example of Carol Allard's highly influential map of the world, embellished with an additional 12 smaller hemispheric and scientific Projections.
Allard's innovative style of presenting multiple hemispheric projections as the embellishments around the primary double hemisphere map was copied by a number of other later mapmakers, including Schenk, Zurner, Homann and Seutter.
