Product Description

Antique world map eastern hemisphere titled ‘Eastern Hemisphere’. Attractive map of the Eastern Hemisphere, including a still partially unexplored Australia, still named New Holland, and no hint of land in the Antartic. Shows regions, cities, islands, and routes of Captain James Cooke and Captain Gore. Published by Henry Teesdale & Co.

The Eastern Hemisphere is a geographical term for the half of Earth which is east of the prime meridian (which crosses Greenwich, London, UK) and west of the antimeridian (which crosses the Pacific Ocean and relatively little land from pole to pole). It is also used to refer to Afro-Eurasia (Africa and Eurasia) and Australia, in contrast with the Western Hemisphere, which includes mainly North and South America. The Eastern Hemisphere may also be called the “Oriental Hemisphere”. In addition, it may be used in a cultural or geopolitical sense as a synonym for the “Old World”.
