    Magnificent Hemisphere world (1664), 48” x 36”Antique wooden frame

    $509,00

    This world map is ready for your wall!

    Overall size: 48” x 36” / 123 x 92cm (Contact us for custom size)

    This new map is a great difference in style, being double-hemisphere rather than the former Mercator Projection map. Above the map are allegorical figures of the planets, the sun & moon, with two cartographers at the sides. Underneath are allegorical figures of the Four Seasons, each drawn by either birds or animals. The cartography is much improved, with the removal of the Great Southern Continent and more contemporary and the addition of the pre-Cook outlines of Australia and New Zealand. Unfortunately Blaeu has chosen to show California as an island, dropping the peninsular depiction of his father.
