Ortelius' world map is one of the most important and widely disseminated maps of the second half of the 16th Century, forming the base model for a number of other contemporary maps. Abraham Ortelius was a Cartographer and Geographer from Antwerp credited with the creation of the first modern atlas in 1592. This is a reprint of one of his beautiful maps included in the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" or Theater of the World.
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.
