Map of the Winds Compass Rose Chart - Vintage Nautical Art Print - Antique Navigational Chart - Restoration Style - Old Maps and Prints
Complete your decor with Jansson's "Tabula Anemographica seu Pyxis Nautica Ventorum Nomina Sex Linguis Repraesentans" from 1650. This amazingly detailed 17th century anemographic, or wind rose chart, is historically significant as it represents a transitional point in the perception of direction, namely the transition from the wind rose to the compass rose.
Early mariners as far back as ancient Greece defined direction by the names the various winds and the points from which they blew. Homer identified four cardinal winds, but as navigation and cartography advanced, more were added. This chart represents a full thirty-two named winds, each identified by different names in Greek, Latin, French, and Dutch. Each wind is attached to both contemporary compass points, north, west, east and south, and a more sophisticated circle and degree system.
In the corners of the chart each wind is personified by figures bearing the racial characteristics associated with the region or direction represented. This chart was published as plate 1 in Jansson's' 1650 Atlas Maritimus or volume 5 in his Atlantis Majoris .
