This is a superb, large beautiful foilio of 60 colored maps, of which 55 double page maps and 5 additionally fold out.  Some of the maps date from 1799.  Cary has a nice balance showing maps from the old world as well as from the new worlds.  North America's interior, much of the Arctic area and Antartica are yet to be explored.
