  • Customer Reviews
Famous Dutch mapmaker Henricus Hondius transformed cartography into a rich, intricate art form with his “Antique Map Geographica, c. 1630.” Hondius (1597- 1651) initially assisted his father Joducus, who innovated the reproduction of spherical objects on two-dimensional surfaces. A remarkable example of Dutch cartography’s Golden Age, this map contains magnificent images of Julius Caesar, Claudius Ptolemy, Joducus Hondius, Gerard Mercator, the four elements and the goddess Europa. Ahead of its time, this map depicts California as an island, and includes an early representation of Australia’s northern coastline.
Famous Dutch cartographer Henricus Hondius (1597 – 1651) produced maps that were both geographically factual and artistically exquisite. Hondius initially assisted his father Joducus, who pioneered the reproduction of spherical objects on two-dimensional surfaces. The younger Hondius later opened his own firm, creating maps that depicting only explored areas, while other cartographers illustrated unseen regions based on their imaginations. Devising double-hemisphere maps, Hondius set a precedent for cartography in the 17th and 18th centuries.

      I purchased an antique steamer trunk and covered the trunk, which had old wallpaper on it, with the old world maps. I matched the pattern as if it were wallpaper. It turned out amazingly beautiful. With the Gold and wood accents of the old trunk, it is now a show piece for my home and certainly a piece that will be handed down. I also bought one of the maps to use framed.

      • This premium giclée print, an upgrade from the standard giclée print, is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper with the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution giclée prints are known for. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto a high-quality paper. The smooth transitions of color gradients make giclée prints appear much more realistic than other prints. More
