"Vtrivsque Hemispherii Delineatio"

Published by Wytfliet, 1597

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

Cornelius Wytfliet published this rare map in 1597 in his Descriptiones Ptolemicae Augmentum, regarded as the first atlas relating exclusively to the New World.

Inspired by Mercator, this reproduction of his mapping shows the world as it was thought to exist at the end of the 16th century. In charting America, Wytfliet has depicted Quivira, the rich lands discovered by Coronado in 1541, and Anian or the "Kingdom of Anion", believed to be the location of a strait between Asia and northwest America.

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.
