General Map of the World 1787

This map is one of my favorite. It is full of interesting information such as the cause of the tides explained by Sir Isaac Newton, much of the latest discoveries of the time, including a Mercator projection of the world, the northern and southern hemispheres of the celestial globe, an astronomical latitude & longitude analemma, a map of the moon according to Father Riccioli, a drawing of the solar system with the planets and their orbits, the vicissitude of seasons explained, and the path of the great explorers. This map describes the whole universe as it was know in 1787 and was originally printed from a set of four engraved copper plates.

Our Map Reproductions are handmade in our Los Angeles studio using heavyweight 23 mil Epson Exhibition Satin Canvas. This elegantly textured canvas features a semi-gloss satin surface that is enhanced with protective elastic polymers. Decorative wood is assembled on the top and bottom, with two eye-hooks mounted on the top piece. We also supply a jute rope twine that can be attached between the two eye-hooks to complete the vintage feel of a roll down canvas scroll.

This canvas map is available in multiple sizes which you can select from the drop down menu when ordering. Check out the different sizes placed in a room added to our listing photos.
