Map Canvas - Hondius World Map
A wonderfully decorative antique world map by Henricus Hondius, first issued in the 1630 edition of the Mercator-Hondius Atlas. The basic cartography follows John Speed's world map. Portraits of Ptolemy, Mercator, Hondius and Julius Caesar are included in the beautifully detailed and decorative borders. One of the most beautiful world maps of the period.

- Canvas prints do not have the same print fidelity as paper prints due to the natural coarser weave of canvas material. Fine detail or small type on some canvas map prints can lack the clarity that would normally be expected on a paper print when viewed at close quarters.
