A new and accurate map

A new and accurate map 
A new and accurate map tapestry based on the first English atlas of the world. This historical work was first published in 1676 in London by Basset & Chiswell. In this historical piece, it shows both hemispheres along with artistic renderings of the sun and moon, famous explorers and the latest in scientific discoveries. As you can see, the most upper Americas and Australia are still missing or 'in cognito'. In the 17th century, map making was the work of talented cartographers who would take the navigational notes and charts drawn by mariners during their voyages and translate them into amazingly accurate maps for their time. It wasn't until the dawn of satellites that the accuracy of these mapmakers became so apparent. As much a work of fine art as they are a record of period cartography, these maps are highly collectible. This is no exception. This work is a marvel at its detail and intricate beauty. A new and accurate map tapestry comes lined on the back and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!

David, England

"I would like to just say that the service and the quality of the tapestry I've recently purchased are exceptional.

The photos are exactly as the actual physical item received.

Might possibly be a returning customer, just need to see if I can find any more space in the house. Thank you for a great service."
