• A Highly Sought-After Antique Map •
This map was created during a period when there were few new geographic discoveries. It shows the world as it was known in the late 17th century. It was made the Dutch cartographer, Johoannes de Ram.
The map is surrounded by stunning engravings of mythological characters by engraver, Jacob Harrewyn. In the original map (from which this was taken), all of the images were meticulously painted by hand. An authentic copy of this map is extremely rare and incredibly valuable. There are few who would ever be able to afford such a map.
When most people first imagine an antique map, it is one like this that springs to mind. Designed to be more decorative than utilitarian, world maps, like this, are a popular part of many classical decorating schemes.
Please note: Due to its size, the large framed map is only available with a cream-colored top mat. Plus, an oversize shipping surcharge of up to $50 will be added for this large item.
All sizes shown are approximate. Matted maps or prints are smaller than the "matted" dimensions shown by about 6".
All of our authentic, more than 100-year old, maps and prints come double matted within museum quality, archival rag mat boards at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
Due to the INCREDIBLY high shipping prices charged for OVERSIZE shipping, shipping charges may be higher than quoted for items that measure more than a total of 70" (matted height + width). For example a matted piece measuring 32" x 40" would be considered OVERSIZE (72"). For complete delivery information, see Information page.
All our authentic antiques are one-of-a-kind items. Since they are actual old works of art expect small imperfections. In some cases we may have more than one of a particular map or print. Since each is unique they may vary slightly from the item shown (when we have more than one if a particular item, the colors may be different than those shown). Each antique map or print has been dry cleaned by hand and are conservation mounted and protected in attractive rag mats. Every work in our gallery carries a lifetime guarantee of authenticity (authentic antiques only) and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee (see Information page for details). Again, the sizes stated are approximate.
