Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and can be framed. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.

This is an attractive, full colour old map of the world in 1802 by John Cary. This is one of the earliest, accurate atlas maps of the entire world - and in a unique twist, the journeys of recent explorers from the 1700s are shown on the map.

For example, the map shows Captain Cook's exploration of Australia, New Zealand and Europe's first contact with Hawaii. Other eminent explorers at the time and shown on this map include Vancouver, Perouse, and Gores.

The 'natural' size for this map is 16x20 inches (40x50cm), but I can print it and frame it at sizes up to 40x50 inches (100x125cm). It looks truly beautiful at that larger size, as you can imagine.

Notably, this map is missing both the Antarctic and Arctic. Cook circumnavigated Antarctica through the Southern Ocean, but he never sighted land back in 1773. The first sightings of the new continent wouldn't be until 1820.

This map, which uses the Mercator projection which was popular at the time, is in great condition and has been lovingly restored by me.

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!

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.
