This is an exceedingly rare, full colour map of the world from 1651 by one of the founding fathers of cartography, John Speed. Amongst collectors, the original version of this map is one of the rarest and most valuable old world maps.

Back in 1651, our understanding of the world wasn't quite what it is today. California is an island! And there's no Antarctica or Australia - just the 'Southern Unknown Land'.

Take a closer look at North America and there are some very early settlements on there - including some that have been completely fabricated by the mapmaker! And why does North America swing off wildly to the west in the top corner?

The 'natural' size for this map is 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but I can print it and frame it at sizes up to 52x70 inches (130x180cm). It looks truly beautiful at that larger size, as you can imagine.

This world map would make a perfect gift for someone who loves to travel or explore, or it would look great as wall art on your own walls! It's a beautiful piece of wall art that would make a good housewarming gift.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

Our museum-quality maps are made on thick and durable matte paper. Add a wonderful accent to your room and office with these vintage map prints that are sure to brighten any environment.
