I am a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews. This is the cheapest place to buy my maps.

Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs. Learn more about how we source maps that you can't buy anywhere else.

Created almost 450 years ago, this is the first ever printed map of Cornwall published by Christopher Saxton, the father of British cartography. My prints of this map are based on one of the finest examples of one of the best and rarest maps of Cornwall.

There's an incredible level of detail on this map, with most towns, cities and even some villages in Cornwall clearly visible.

This old map was hand coloured almost 450 years ago and, as you can see, is still in amazing condition for a map of this age.

This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (30x40cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 60 inches (150cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.

Many of the towns, villages and cities in Cornwall are already visible in this map. Curiously, a beautiful inset engraving in the top left of Launceston suggests that this town was the capital of Cornwall back then. Cornwall itself has a different shape, too - we now know that the southwest peninsula is a lot further south.

Some of the towns, villages and places clearly visible in this old map include: Penzance, Lizard Point, St Ives, Plymouth, Padstow, St Michael's Mount and even Lands End! But of course, many of them are spelt in their Early Modern English forms.

Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown!

This would make a wonderful gift for someone from Cornwall or who has Cornwall in their heart.

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.

My 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.
