Le Petit Journal Mappemonde: Dressée et Gravée Spécialment pour Le Petit Journal d'aprés Les Documents les plus recents...

Menetrier, F

Paris et Sceaux

Gravée et imprimépar F. Charaire



Color double-hemisphere map of the world. Each hemisphere 51.3 cm (20¼") in diameter; on sheet 93.4x109.4 cm (36¾x43"), mounted on linen cloth backing.

Rare world map issued as a special supplement to the French newspaper Le Petit Journal. The  map shows shipping routes and sailing times to destinations around the world, and is bracketed by six vignettes of scenes from the far reaches of the globe. At top and bottom are 84 costumed figures depicting the peoples of the world. OCLC/WorldCat lists only one example, at the National Library of Australia, its scarcity due in part, no doubt, to the fragile nature of the newsprint upon which it is printed, and to its large size.

Lot Amendments

Darkening to the paper, some wear at edges and along the folds, very good.
