Framed Print of Map of the world, 1660

17th century map of the world. Published in Amsterdam in 1660, this map by the Dutch cartographer Frederick de Witt (1630-1706) shows the expanding exploration of the known world. The map divides the Earth into a western and eastern hemisphere. In the upper corners are the constellations of the northern and southern celestial poles, with the geographical poles in the lower corners. Above and below the hemispheres are the Aristotlean elements of Air, Fire, Earth and Water. At upper centre is the Sun, with the Earth orbiting on an ecliptic ring of zodaical symbols. At lower centre, Ptolemy's geocentric cosmology (left) is contrasted with the heliocentric Copernican cosmology (right)

Wood effect frame with 10x8 print in a card mount. Archival quality photographic paper. Overall outside dimensions are 14x12 inches (363x325mm). Features hardboard back stapled in with hanger and glazed with durable Styrene Plastic to provide a virtually unbreakable glass-like finish. Easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Moulding is 40mm wide by 15mm thick. Please note that, to prevent the paper falling through the mount window and to prevent cropping of the original artwork, the visible print may be slightly smaller to allow the paper to be securely attached to the mount without any white edging showing and to match the aspect ratio of the original artwork.
