Old World Map antique 1641


Ornately decorated and beautifully colored, this world map epitomizes the baroque style favored during the Golden Age of Dutch cartography. The map was prepared in 1630 by Henricus Hondius, who had joined in partnership with Jan Jansson to revitalize the map book entitled ''Atlas'', that was originated by Gerard Mercator in 1595 and continued by Henricus's father Jodocus over the next 35 years. Henricus' world map had a long life as well, appearing in the various editions of the Mercator atlas published from 1633 to 1658.


Henricus designed his map using two hemispheres, providing the impression of looking at both sides of a globe at the same time. Although this was not the first time the double hemisphere projection was used for a world map, the longevity of this example most likely provided a precedent for the wide use of this projection throughout the 17th and 18th centuries.


The Map is approximately 24 x 31 inches.


The map is printed on fine heavyweight matte archival paper 250gsm


The frame is not included.


This page will be carefully inserted into a solid tube. The sleeve will be shipped in a tube to prevent any bending. I'm happy to combine shipping, just ask!


Be sure to check out our other vintage maps and medieval city illustrations. If there is a city, state, country or region you are looking for just let me know, I'm likely to have it.
