Mappe Monde Geo-Spherique 1760

This hand -colored 1760 engraved geo-spherical map of the world was dedicated to, and approved by, King Louis XVI. It shows an introduction to geography, hydrography and the armillary sphere and offers commentaries distributed around and within the hemispheres. The winds are represented around the spheres, both in Franch and Italian. Also present are 4 diagrams representing respectively the system of Copernicus, Ptolemy, Tycho, and Descartes. Two more diagrams explain the theory of the Solar and the Lunar eclipes. Seasons, longitudes, latitudes, climate zones are also represented, with indications about and the people who inhabited the various areas of the world.

Our reproductions are handmade in our Los Angeles studio, using only high resolution files printed on archival cotton weave canvas. They are twice varnished with a Polymer gloss that ensures UV protection and enhances the colors. Decorative wood is assembled on the top and bottom, with two eye-hooks mounted on the top piece. We also supply a jute rope that can be attached between the two eye-hooks to give the map that old pull down map feel.
