Map of the World on a Globular Projection. Aaron Arrowsmith. London: 1808
This map is notable as much for what it leaves out as for what it includes. Arrowsmith was an influential map maker who followed rigorously the latest discoveries and showed them on his maps. When he did not have accurate information, he left those areas of the world blank. Examples on this map are the western parts of North America, most of internal Africa, and most of Australia.
