QUALITY REPRODUCTIONS OF VERY RARE MAPS2018-08-02

World - Nova Orbis Tabula, in Lucem Edita - Reproduction - 1673
If 16th and 17th century maps fit your aesthetic, but not so much your budget, our new reproductions are for you. The 1673 DeWitt world map, pictured above, shows the globe quartered into Western and Eastern Hemispheres with polar maps showing the (charmingly incomplete) Northern and Southern Hemispheres, with curious heavenly scenes adorning the four corners. Two additional world maps, World - Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica ac Hydrographica Tabula and Orbis Terrarum Typus de Integro Multis in Locis Emendatus, were both produced by Visscher circa 1684 and include illustrated topographical detail, map monsters, ships sailing the seas (not to scale), and border illustrations representing the cultural dress and armors of various nations and cultures. Our new 1593 map of Africa by de Jode, Africae Vera Forma, et Situs, also boasts seas full of ships and serpents. Finally, our 1631 map of Great Britain, or Britannia, by Janssonius (sometimes called the Heptarchy Map) includes a decorated cartouche, compass roses, coats of arms, as well as portraits of the rulers of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms. Hang one of these gorgeous historical works on your wall without breaking the bank!
