Behold the 1870 World Map "Nueste Karte Der Erbe", a vastly complex German language map of the world by C. F. Baur and Traugott Bromme. This extraordinary map presents the world on a Mercator Projection. Designed with a educational purposes in mind, Baur manages to incorporate a wealth of informative detail into every corner of this map, with an attempt at water current and wind patterns, and border regions occupied by a series of smaller maps and charts including polar projections, an isothermal chart, a wind chart, an inset of Panama and Suez, weather charts, and a magnetic variation chart. The title cartouche, appearing in the lower left quadrant shows a ship and a train as well as a logo that seems to embrace the realms of both navigation and science.

This particular map was cut in four sections and mounted to linen backing for ease of folding as a travelers map. Each of the four sections also has centered folding creases.

This print is a highly detailed scan of an original engraved print and is truly an amazing image perfect for framing. It makes an excellent addition to your home or office, and is a perfect gift for the nautically inclined.

This image has been digitally retouched and repaired as necessary, while leaving the foxing, wear, and creases that lend to the intrigue of these old works. This giclee quality art is printed on heavyweight matte archival / acid-free museum quality stock with lightfast inks rated 100+ years. No watermark will appear on your print. The artwork is printed with a surrounding white margin (included in print size, see below) to aid in framing/matting the print. Your purchase will ship priority mail (US) in a protective kraft tube made from 70-100% post-consumer recycled content and up to 30% secondary recycled content.

Given the nature of vintage artwork created before the standardization of print and frame sizes, this item may not conform exactly to the dimensions you choose. To allow for the odd sizing of these images they are printed approximately 2 inches smaller than the paper they are on. This way you receive a standard size, with a white surrounding border that allows for easy framing, with or without a matte.

Available in:
12" x 16"
18" x 24"
