A heavenly creation that’s sumptuous in every detail.

by Henricus Hondius, c. 1630
A heavenly creation that’s sumptuous in every detail. A rare edition produced in Amsterdam in 1630 with each and every piece having been hand coloured. It was the first printed map to feature any part of the newly discovered Australia. Charming vignettes of historical figures illustrate the four seasons of the year. A fine portrait of Mercator sits to the bottom left whilst Julius Caesar looks down from above. Sailing ships and sea monsters abound elsewhere. A map of great beauty that has remained a joy to behold throughout the centuries and will undoubtedly continue to be so for evermore. We recommend a darker mount when selecting a frame.
