"Typus Orbis Terrarum"
Published by Ortelius, 1570
Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016
This superb reproduction of the historically significant map by Abraham Ortelius was first published in the Latin edition of his atlas. Though remarkably precise for its time, there were some notable inaccuracies, namely, the westerly bulge of South America (which was corrected in 1587), and a massive Southern Continent that was not rectified until the voyages of Captain Cook 200 years later.
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.
