This historic map by famous cartographer Gerardus Mercator was published in Amsterdam, 1637. The map is a beautiful engraving of the western and eastern hemispheres surrounded by elegant strapwork ornamentation along with a celestial sphere and compass rose. Featured below the map are several paragraphs of supplemental text in English which include "A Short Instruction of the Creation and Making of the World."
Each map is produced as a detailed museum quality archive print. This special printing process is known as Giclee (zhee-CLAY) and is commonly used to produce very high quality fine art prints. Printed on Archive Paper, Luster Photo Paper, or Matte Canvas.
Map print ships rolled up in a durable cardboard tube. Frame is not included.
Premium fine art paper that provides accurate color reproduction with high-contrast, high-resolution print output and maximum image permanence. A high-quality print ready for framing.
A premium semi-gloss photo paper with a subtle texture that produces a vivid, richly detailed print. This material results in an exquisitely detailed giclee print of substantially higher quality than a standard poster.
A canvas giclee print is mounted to wooden hanging rails placed along the top and bottom of the map. Ready to hang on the wall using the attached hanging cord. Wood rails feature a natural finish.
A high quality canvas giclee print is hand stretched over a sturdy wood frame. Printed on demand and handcrated in Seattle, WA. The canvas gallery wrap serves as a stunning piece of art ready to hang on your wall.
