Description
 
18th Century World Wall Map

Each atlas published in the 1700s held a large fold out map of the world.  Usually named "Orbis Terrarum", Latin for Sphere of two halves of the world.  Maps then were colored, skilled artists highlighted boundaries, washed in oceans and mountain ranges, and delicately embellished cartouches.  In this spirit and tradition we carry on, printing maps on museum quality stock and coloring them in great detail, to enhance both the informative and decorative aspects of early cartography.

***This map is not current.  It is an 18th century replica map.***

Attention to detail is key. Authentic Models (AM) replicates the complicated ’gravure’ printing process, resulting in the sharpest lines, words and symbols even on the smallest size globe. All AM globes are made using original charts, researched by AM for their historical accuracy and visual appeal.

Centuries ago globes were made by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished papier-mache core. Given the limited technology available at the time, a complicated production process and a multitude of specialists involved, it was logical that only the very rich could afford to own globes. This is illustrated by 17th C. Dutch painters who used globes to symbolize affluence, science, sohistication, even worldiness.

Authentic Model globes offer history at your fingertips and highlight some of the world's most famous cartographers:  Mercator, Hondius, Kaerius and Vaugondy.
