Early 18th century world map, from Nicolas de Fer’s ‘Atlas Curieux ou de Monde.’ De Fer was an official geographer for the kings of Spain and France, and one of the most prolific map publishers of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, although many of his maps were drawn with a focus on artistry rather than geographic accuracy. This particular map covers the globe, labeling land regions, islands, and oceans.
