Antique Map of the Pacific Ocean 1589 by Historic Urban Plans


Ortelius was the first to produce a printed map devoted entirely to the Pacific Ocean, and it was the earliest to name both North and South America. Its beauty matches its cartographic importance, for it is distinctively colored, features two elaborate cartouches, and includes a handsome vignette of Magellan's ship sailing westward on the first voyage around the world. 

We liked this antique map print so much we framed it and put it on our wall in the store!
