A new and accurate map tapestry based on the first English atlas of the world. It is based on the historical work 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.
