  • $ 12.50


A rare sideways map, nearly lost and delicately restored. It maintains rustic qualities of a map nearly lost to time. Despite wear and tear done to the original over the past three centuries, the majority of the text is still readable with a good eye and a half-decent magnifying glass. Small stamps on the paper were added by the historical archives cataloging the new find. It was positioned for the direction ships would first arrive at the coast, and because Europe is, of course, the center of the universe, God bless the King.

All of our prints are beautifully rendered on 13 by 19 professional heavyweight matte photo paper. All images are printed exactly as shown to order. Old photos and other vintage media sometimes have a bit of blur which we are careful to keep, as we do with the creases in film posters or antique maps so that your print will still carry with it the true character of the original. All prints are carefully rolled for shipping and safely inserted in a high quality shipping tube. When purchased with a frame, we frame the print for you and it is shipped in a high quality shipping box especially designed for frames to ensure it gets to you in mint condition.
