Remarks My personal favourite among the equal-area projections! :-) In 1941, Wagner introduced four variants of the projection that was derived from the azimuthal equal-area projection. The first variant is nowdays known as Wagner VII or Hammer-Wagner. This is one of the other three.

As far as I know, there’s no established name for this variant, so I decided to call it Wagner VII.b here.
