Historic World Map Puzzle
3,000 piece puzzle is a wonderful example of a surviving 17th century wall
map. Designed to captivate the viewer with their beauty and decorative
detail, historic wall maps represent the pinnacle of "Golden Age of
Cartography". The source for this map is unknown, though the map has been
signed "G. Blaeu" in the title banner. Even its place of publication,
Venice, is uncertain. While this map - like many 17th century wall maps -
is based on Blaeu's wall map of 1605, it also bears a striking resemblance
to the 1629 map of Nicolaes van Wassenaer - of which there is only one known
example. While there are many pieces of the maps origins missing, we
guarantee all 3,000 will be in the box!
Made from recycled board and also features a
linen-finished paper to ensure glare-free viewing.
