Pub Note:
Lacks tetotum, pillars & counters. We assume John Walker (no John in title) because Darton published John Walker's school books. Two large sheets, each with a hemisphere and text surrounding the full color maps. Dissected sheets, back with linen, are housed in a 18x12 brown case with title on front.
