A spectacularly attractive separately-published Dutch world map. The spandrels surrounding the hemispheres are richly decorated by peasant-class agricultural allegories of the four seasons. Extremely rare, with Shirley making mention of only two (privately held) copies known to him. Shirley 343; Tooley Dictionary page 638.
