WORLD. EASTERN AND WESTERN HEMISPHERES BY ALFRED ADLARD, CIRCA 1879.
EASTERN & WESTERN HEMISPHERES
A scarce and highly decorative pair of maps showing the two Hemispheres, engraved and published by Alfred Adlard, to accompany "Adlard's Vignette Modern School Atlas Of The World", published London circa 1879. Very similar to the elaborate maps published by John Tallis in the 1850's, the present series is far more uncommon. The maps are generally decorated with vignettes and scenes depicting particular views and local inhabitants.
Each measures approx. 250 x 290 mm. Centrefold as issued. Closed tear at lower right of the Eastern map, not affecting the engraved surface. Good condition. See photo for condition.
Attractive hand colour.
A guaranteed genuine antique map.
