 A fascinating map of Poland, published in 1799 by one of the preeminent map makers of the time, John Cary.

This map shows the dismemberment of the Kingdom of Poland into three parts in 1772, 1793 and 1795, to Austria, Russia and Prussia respectively. Yellow shows the Austrian regions, Blue shows Russia, and Red shows Prussia.

More accurately, this map actually shows the splitting up of the Poland-Lithuania Commonwealth. Poland wouldn't exist again as a sovereign nation until after World War 1.

This map looks amazing at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm) to 18x24 (45x60cm) and beyond. It looks truly beautiful at larger sizes like 24x36 inches (60x90cm). I can print this map at sizes up to 90 inches (230cm) wide. Get in touch if you're looking for very large or customised maps.

The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.

Please note the unframed 24x30 inch map has white edges around the map. These edges can help you with framing, or if you don’t need them they are very easy to snip off with scissors. All other maps, including the framed maps, look exactly like the listing images.

A surprising number of towns, villages and cities are already visible in this map of Poland, including Warsaw. Do zoom into the map and try to spot your hometown or favourite holidaying destination!

This would make a wonderful gift for someone from Poland or who is interested in the history of central Europe.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes my maps pop out on the wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. I use super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite) to glaze my frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

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.

This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.

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.

Delivery time is about 5 working days after you order.

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

Please note that framed maps larger than 100cm/40 inches take longer to make and delivery is usually within 10 working days. I will get in touch with you to discuss the specifics of delivery.

Coronavirus is still causing random delays and some maps can take longer to arrive. If you need your map to arrive in time for an important date, please contact me before you order and I'll do my best to get the map to you on time.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order will be sent by courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce) and will usually arrive in 2-3 working days. Please note that framed maps will usually take a little longer.

Customers in the UK, EU, US, Australia, Canada and Singapore: Your map will be sent from a printer or framer local to you, which means you'll get your map sooner, you won't pay import duties, and we'll put less CO2 into the atmosphere. I have worked with all of my printers and framers for years, and I quality control every single map. So your map will always look amazing, no matter where you order from!

If you want a frame that's a specific colour or material, or want your map mounted/matted, please get in touch. I work with specialist framers around the world and have hundreds of framing options - so we should be able to find a frame that suits your decor/aesthetic.

Read more about how I can custom frame and mount/mat your old map.

Alternatively, I can also sell you an old map on canvas, foam board, cotton rag and other materials.

If you want to frame your map yourself, please read my map size guide first.

My standard frame is a black wood frame. It is simple and quite modern looking. On maps up to 36 inches (91cm) the frame is 2cm (0.75in) wide. I use thicker frames on larger maps - usually between 35 and 60mm (1.4in to 2.4in).

In all cases I use super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite) for the frame glass. It's lighter and safer than glass - and it looks better, as the reflectivity is lower.

All frames are provided "ready to hang", with either a string or brackets on the back. Very large frames will have heavy duty hanging plates and/or a mounting baton. If you have any questions... always get in touch!

My maps are extremely high quality reproductions of original maps.

I source original, extremely rare maps from libraries, auction houses and private collections around the world, restore them at my London workshop, and then use specialist giclée inks and printers to create beautiful maps that look even better than the original.

My maps are printed on acid-free archival matte (not glossy) paper that feels very high quality and almost like card. In technical terms the paper weight/thickness is 10mil/190gsm. It's perfect for framing.

I print with Epson ultrachrome giclée UV fade resistant pigment inks - some of the best inks you can find.

Please contact me if you're looking for a print on canvas or cotton rag.

Map personalisation

If you want to make your old map really unique, I am able to personalise your map with a short message, for example:

- "Happy birthday, Ben! From Mum & Dad"

- "To My Beloved. Let's Explore The World Together!"

This message will be added to the map in such a way that it looks just like a real part of the map.

Select the "Personalise Map" option above if you'd like to add map personalisation to your map.
