Shop on Etsy


HQ Fine-Art print reproduction of antique world map. Rare. Arguably the most finely engraved, folio-format world map to date, is a superb example. The Plancius/ Vrients & its 1594 predecessor were the first world maps to combine the double-hemisphere configuration with elaborate border ornamentation. The Vrients edition appeared in only 1596, the first edition of Linschoten's Itinerario, & in a few copies of the 1599 edition. Thus, though it is possible that separately published issues of the 1594 edition preceded the Vrients edition, as a map in a published work the Vrients issue in fact had precedence. The 1594 edition did not appear in the Itinerario until 1599. Created around 1596. ◆ Fine art Print Printed on heavyweight 190g fine art grade watercolor paper with artistic smooth texture. ◆ Size This print comes in size 16 x 23 inches ◆ Shipping - Print is shipped in a strong tube for secure shipping & it will be shipped as a priority mail for faster delivery; ✖ Frame is not included with this purchase.
