Map of the World on the Mercator Projection Exhibiting the American Continent As Its Center, Samuel Augustus Mitchell
This vintage 1860 world map is from Mitchel's New General Atlas. The decorative map was hand-colored and features the Americas centered in a Mercator projection. Also depicted on the map are exploration routes taken by famous 18th and 19th century explorers including Captain James Cook, John Gore, James Ross, and the U.S. Exploring Expedition also known as the Wilkes Expedition. A decorative floral vine border frames the map.
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.
