Reproduced from an engraving in the Cornell University Library by Willem Janzoon Blaeu, this map depicts the World in 1635. Blaeu’s stunningly beautiful map combines cartographic accuracy with imaginative decoration. Three cartouches and two polar insets appear in the body of the map along with ships and sea monsters. The border panels depict the four elements, the seven known planets, the four seasons, and the seven wonders of the world. The coloring is superb, and the engraving is precise and elegant. This reproduction map makes a stunning addition to your home or office décor and an excellent gift for history buffs.
