A New Map of the Terraqueous Globe


Map by Michael Burghers, ca. 1700
In the late seventeenth century, the term “terraqueous,” deriving from the Latin word for water and land, was used to describe world maps and globes. Rather than provide information on towns and recent explorations, this map utilizes text to describe the climate zones and hemispheres of the continents and oceans.
