About This Piece
The Art
Oronce Fines world map. Map of the worlds northern and southern hemispheres by the French mathematician and cartographer Oronce Fine (14941555). Published in 1531 as A New and Complete Description of the World, this is a double polar cordiform (heartshaped) projection. It shows an unknown southern continent, Terra Australis, and excludes most of the Americas. The text box names the publisher (Hermannus Venraed), gives Fines Latin name (Orontius Fineus), and mentions the Ancient Greek geographers (Ptolemy, Eudoxus, and Erastothenes), whose accounts Fine had tried to reconcile with the new discoveries being made.

This photographic print leverages sophisticated digital technology to capture a level of detail that is absolutely stunning. The colors are vivid and pure. The high-quality archival paper, a favorite choice among professional photographers, has a refined luster quality.

Exactly what I was looking for
I was looking everywhere for this specific print but couldn't find a clear copy for a decent price, if I could find the print at all. I'm very happy with my purchase here.
