This work of art pays homage to the famous Flemish cartographer and map publisher, Abraham Ortelius, who printed Americae Sive Novi Orbis, Nova Descripto (A New Description of America or the New World.) as a part of his Theatrum Orbus Terrarum, considered the first modern atlas of the known world. The atlas was initially published in 1570, with new editions issued through 1612. The Theatrum was the first atlas released as a collection of uniform sized map sheets with their text printed from specially engraved copper plates. The unique Wooden Handled Scroll Map was entirely hand-tooled and stained on a thick leather hide, and was professionally mounted within a shadow box frame.

The map has a beautifully rendered cartouche containing ornate scrollwork with garlands of fruit and flora. Masks and winged lions also decorate the map title, which translates to “A New Description of America or the New World.” Other artwork on the map includes a ship traversing the oceans and the nautical star.

Protected in an elegant custom shadow box frame of a high-quality wood-grain moldings, and finished with quality protective glass to keep it looking pristine, ensuring protection of your investment while allowing you to fully appreciate this piece of gallery quality art.

This is a guaranteed conversation starter and the crown jewel of any collection. It's an exciting investment that will only get better with age.

Great vintage patina - just the way we like'em!

A must for any man-cave, bar/tavern/pub, garage, game room, lady den, nautical collector, Americana - or all of the above.
