HISTORY OF THIS MAP

A double-hemisphere world map after the great French cartographer Guillaume de L'Isle, with four inset maps in the corners -- two polar maps and two showing views of the world centered on Paris and its antipodes -- and an elaborate cartouche at the top decorated with figures representing four continents. De L'Isle's map was originally published in 1700 and then revised and republished throughout the 18th century by de L'Isle and by subsequent map publishers.

Guillaume de L' Isle, appointed Royal Geographer in 1718, was the leading French cartographer of the early 18th century, and certainly among the most influential. He was known for his prolific output -- over 100 maps -- and his exceptional accuracy. From his first atlas, published at age 25, De L’Isle made an effort, unprecedented in his era, to base his work on verifiable, current data and to correct prevalent fallacies, such as the depiction of California as an island. His maps and atlases were frequently reissued after his death by Philippe Buache, Phillippe’s nephew Jean Nicolas Buache, and J.A. Dezauche. The Amsterdam publishers Covens and Mortier also reissued de L’Isle maps. De L’Isle maps also served as inspiration for derivatives by various other cartographers including Jeremias Wolff and Matthäus Seutter.

Covens and Mortier was an Amsterdam firm formed in 1721 by Johannes Covens in partnership with the heirs of Pierre Mortier. Mortier, a Frenchman, had established a publishing house in Amsterdam by around 1685 and published or reissued maps by some of the great French and Dutch mapmakers of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, including Guillaume de L’Isle, Carel Allard and Jan Jansson. After Mortier’s death in 1711, the family continued the business and then joined with Covens. Covens and Mortier issued several atlases, including its major work Atlas Nouveau, published in nine folio volumes between 1711 and 1760. The firm also issued world and continent maps.

We have researched and studied the roll up maps and charts of yesteryear. This endeavor now allows us here at WaterColorMaps to offer you amazing period reproductions that are constructed the same way as the original were 150 years ago.

WOODEN HANGING MAP-this map is mounted on two vintage wooden bars colored with our own custom stains. This allows some of the wood grain to show through the hanging bars. Each hanging map includes a cast iron hanger, brass name plate and cotton cord. It arrives to you ready to display on your wall.

PULLDOWN MAP ON WOODEN ROLLER- this map mounted on a vintage wooden spring roller like the maps of the 1920s. Each Roller map is built to exact specifications for the map you ordered. Period hardware and screws are used. We also will include the 8" iron hooks and all the iron rings to hang your map. Each map will come with pull down handles mounted to the bottom of the map, brass name plate and screws for mounting your map.
