Mappa Geographica Regionem Mexicanam et Floridam Poster

Germany, c. 1730
22 x 25 in (56 x 64 cm)
ID #ROLLDWN-Z-38A

Vintage map by a German cartographer illustrating France, Spain, and England's colonial territories. The map has a regal air to it: the text is all written in Latin, even going to the length of "Latinizing" the names Florida and Mexico—places the Ancient Romans probably never got around to naming. The details on the map really demonstrate the master craftsmanship of 18th Century cartographers. The naval battle scene illustrated in the bottom left corner of the map adds a personal touch that today's mass-produced maps can never replicate.
