This is a fine example of Adam and Charles Black's 1844 map of the world on Mercator's Projection. An interesting map of the world issued just as most of the Earth's non-polar shore has been explored. Vast stretches of unmapped territory and speculative cartography fill central Africa and Australia. In Africa, Lake Nyasa is shown only speculatively. Neither Mt. Kenya nor Mt. Kilimanjaro are shown. The sea between Japan and Korea, whose name, either the 'Sea of Korea' or the 'Sea of Japan,' is currently a matter of historical and political dispute between the two countries, is here identified in favor of Japan. The map is color coded according to continents with counties named but their boundaries not defined. Various important cities, rivers, islands, mountain ranges, and several other topographical details are noted with relief shown by hachure. This map was engraved by George Aikman for issue as plate no. II in the 1844 edition of Black's General Atlas.
