Framed Antique Maps

The map of the world has changed for centuries; beginning when people thought the Earth was flat. Initially only Europe, North Africa, and Asia Minor were shown. Then the maps expanded, showing entire continents, and eventually including America on the other side of the globe. We will examine various framed antique maps.

A framed antique map is “New World Map, 17th Century” by Nicholas Visscher. Although this map shows the Earth is round, it also shows an incomplete view of it, making it an historical piece. Only part of North America is rendered, as are only part of the Pacific Islands. Australia and the South Pole are incomplete as well. This map was rendered during the Age of Discovery, when Europeans were still exploring, and documenting, far-flung nations. Its background is beautiful, having angels, centaurs, and possibly Bible scenes.

Framed Antique Map prints

Vision Studio presents us with the framed old map “Map of the World, c.1800s (Mercator Projection).” It is much improved since the previous one, having had several extra centuries of exploration. North America and Australia are now complete. Unlike the other one it is rendered more austerely, having no decorations. It is clearly a functional map, both for sailors and for education.

While not a map of the world, the framed antique map of the New World “American Posts and Forts, 1861” by Andrew Johnson gives us an historical look at America around the time of the Civil War. The description says “forts and military posts,” indicating that it was used by the Army.
