Grande e dettagliatissima carta pittoresca del mondo disegnata da F. Heinrichsen che mostra attraverso deliziose vignette l’ingegno e l’operosità dell’uomo e le caratteristiche di tutte le aeree della Terra: accanto a ogni toponimo sono infatti riportate le caratteristiche del luogo come per esempio il tabacco a Cuba, il rum e lo zucchero nelle isole caraibiche, oro e diamanti in alcune aree dell’Africa, petrolio in Arabia, le famose olive di Creta o le vignette degli agrumi in Sicilia. La stupenda carta è completata da note su avvenimenti storiche come il galeone di Colombo nelle Antille con la data della scoperta delle Americhe o indicazioni sulle distanze nelle rotte navali tra le maggiori destinazioni del mondo. Pubblicata a O. Wommelsdorff e C. Schietzel nel 1947.
