A View of ye General & Coasting Trade Windsc. 1715: Herman Moll, “A View of ye General & Coasting Trade Winds”, map of the world about 51 cms wide by 19 cms high, black and white, showing the trade winds throughout the world according to information provided by Dr. Edmund Halley; although this purports to be one of the maps drawn by Moll to prove that California was an island, this version of the map does not have what other published versions show, namely, a California partly hidden by the title of the work; in this one, California is clearly not an island, and the gulf of California is visible. It is taken from Vol. II of an unidentified work, and is plate number XXXI on p. 199.
