Note changes to listing and new photos added. Presenting this original map of the Americas by Abraham Ortelius from the year 1586 (date shown in closeup photo), in very good condition. Just added: microscope closeup images of map date and first letter A of the maps title. Photos show texture and hint at composition of the paper. Hopefully the closeups prove authenticity of the map to prospective buyers. The map was state-of-the-art for its time, and extremely important for exploration, trade, and conquest.

Shows remarkable detail of the eastern coasts, interiors of the continental interiors as far as explored, and is full of historical notations. Various sailing ships of the day are also shown. The explorers believed that a vast continent existed south of the continents, including both Tierra del Fuego and New Guinea (see photos).

Printed image measures 14 3/8" x 20". One photo shows an illegible faint circular stamp or watermark, about an inch in diameter, on a back corner. In near excellent condition, with minor yellowing, some stains in the margins, a 2 tear in the bottom margin of the thin paper (which reaches only slightly into the printed border), typical wrinkles, and no patches or repairs (see photos). There is no apparent vertical fold crease at the center of the map, as may be typical.

We are happy to provide more close-up photos if requested. Includes wood frame with glass.
