The World in Hemispheres: The top portion showcases the major rivers of the world. They are grouped according to length, with the longest rivers drawn at the top of the map. This was an effort to show the comparative size of each river as it relates to other rivers across the globe.
Carte De La Louisiane: De L'Isle's "Carte de la Louisiane" published in approximately 1731 would become the primary reference source for exploration of the Mississippi and Missouri river valleys and was used by other cartographers as late as 1797. Believed to be the oldest map consulted in the planning of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
The 16x20" size makes it easy for you or them to frame.
