Handmade to order
This is a rare, handcoloured map from 1889 showing the growth of the Roman Empire from 266BC through to 305AD. The map was originally created and published by German map makers Justus Perthes and Albert van Kampen.
You actually get two maps for the price of one: the top half of the map shows the full extent of the Roman Empire - up to Hadrian's Wall in the north, and briefly as far east as Iran. Inset you have another map, showing the gradual growth of the empire over 500 years.
The original name for this map is in Latin: Imperium Romanum quo modo et quando paulatim auctum sit maxime ad exemplum Sieglini hac tabula descripsit. It roughly translates to, showing the gradual growth of the Roman Empire, as originally demonstrated by Sieglini.
This map looks fantastic at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm) all the way through to 24x30 inches (60x76cm) and beyond. I can print massive versions of this map at sizes up to 3 metres.
The model in the listing images is holding the 24x18 inch (60x45cm) version of this map.
Please note that the 24x30 inch unframed map has white edges that can be easily snipped off (or they may help you with framing). All other sizes, and all framed maps, are exactly like the listing images.
Get in touch if you're looking for larger, or large framed maps. I use super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in my frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
This Roman world map would make a perfect gift for someone who loves to travel or explore, or a history buff, 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.

I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
