"Universi Orbis Descriptio ad Usum Navigantium"

Published by Giovanni Antonio Magini, 1596

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This is a superb reproduction of the original hand-colored woodcut map of the world published by Magini in 1596.

Here, the map is set in a page of text which is titled: XXXV. Descrittione di Tvttol Mondo Secondo la Prattica de' Marinari. A descriptive paragraph of Italian completes the image.

We custom-print this facsimile map on waterproof canvas in our Lahaina studio using the finest archival inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade or shift under normal circumstances for over 100 years. Modern printing techniques allow us to improve and enhance the historical subject matter, even as we're careful to preserve and maintain its historical and artistic integrity.
