Historic World Map Print - 1700's

A New Mapp of the World, Samuel Thornton

This elegantly colored map of the world was originally published around 1702-1707 and was included in the Sea-Atlas: "Containing an Hydrographical Description of most of the sea-coasts of the Known Parts of the world".  The map presents the world in western and eastern hemispheres with polar projections of the north and south pole. Illustrations surrounding the map include representations of people in Europe, Asia, America, and Africa.

This is a museum quality antique map reproduction print available in multiple sizes as either a paper print or Giclee photo paper print. Giclee prints are also available with dry-mounting to a 1" deep plaque mount style frame with 1/8" beveled edge (Choose from 30 frame edge color choices).
All reproduction prints are printed as "museum quality", using advanced ink formulas and durable museum quality paper. The reproduction prints reflect the state of repair of the original conserved document. Stains and imperfections reflected in the original map at the time it was collected for conservation are left un-retouched, as they reflect the character and charm of the vintage original. Some major imperfections, such as dark fold lines have been removed when possible. Maps are printed as ordered and are not returnable unless received damaged.
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. The result is an exquisitely detailed print of substantially higher quality than a standard map poster.

Giclee Print Features:
  • Printed on 10 mil premium luster photo paper resulting in a brilliant, colorful image with a vivid life-like quality.
  • Pigment based Canon LUCIA inks provide smooth tones and rich colors in fine, precise detail.
  • Inks have a lightfastness rating of over 100 years, guaranteeing minimal noticeable fading over a very long period of time.
  • Printed using very high resolution source files.
  • Giclee printing is superior to traditional lithography in a number of ways: colors are brighter, lasts longer, and is a higher resolution.
Museum quality beveled edge plaque mounting is available for our historic map giclee prints.
