  • About the Artist
  • Customer Reviews
Gerardus Mercator’s (1512 – 1594) was a pioneer in modern mapmaking, creating a new approach to cartography that changed how the world created and viewed maps. Mercator, a Flemish mapmaker, developed a technique for charting the earth which accurately depicted a round object on a flat surface. His innovation, called the Mercator Projection, for the first time allowed sailors to travel long distances with minimal changes in compass readings. Ultimately, for his groundbreaking views of the world, he was jailed for religious heresy.

      Great map, but at the largest size this print appears grainy and low resolution.

        Comments:

        Old maps are beautiful works of art. This map has some history to it and I find it useful for research but the words are too small to read. When it was first made, it was printed on 18 individual sheets of paper so was much larger than my 32"x24" poster. But, it looks FINE.
