    Yes, the one with the labels is hand-labeled, it was published in 1790 or thereabouts.

    Moutarde, I think I may just be looking at your magnum opus! I tip my hat to you sir.

    Hand-labeled!? If I would hand-label my maps you could hardly read anything!

    I'm about to go Hand labeled myself. Inkscape keeps crashing while I'm positioning things. Sometimes it goes for hours and other times it just blows up. I have enough problems deciding on my labels at the moment that I don't need to keep loosing what I'm doing. LOL, I guess it's one way to get faster though. One of these days I'll do a hand labeled map though. I took drafting for a bit back in school and still have nice print. It is hard to make every letter exactly the same size though. I probably should learn how to make a font.

    This is shaping up to be excellent moutarde, keep going!

    This is the sort of map, albeit in much simpler form, I'd like to create. Well done so far and keep it up!

    Thanks Mark The map is currently on hiatus while I'm working on some commissions, but when I get started again I'll be reworking the landmasses - there's some pretty significant problems with their shapes, around the poles especially and somewhat around the equator.

    Sir, you are indeed nuts, still brilliant .

    ouch... i was searching google for stereographic maps and came across this which i'd honestly never seen before and is so similar to mine (in fairness, were both basing our maps off that amazing real-world example). just thought i'd say congrats on doing this before me and doing a might fine job of it too. Hope this gets finished one day.

    Yeah, this has always been one of my "unfinished favorites". A shame it has never been completed.
