World map, c. 1861

View of the world based on Gerard Mercator’s projection. Mercator (1512-1594) was a cartographer, philosopher and mathematician who is widely known today for having created a world map in 1569 that used straight lines to depict sailing courses of constant bearing.

Our map is a high-quality reprint an original map by James Wyld, a successful map publisher in London during the mid 1800’s.

The pigments used are light-fast to prevent the colors from fading. Because each segment is laid on a durable cloth, the map folds into a slip case and can be sent as a gift unframed.
