Description

Gorgeous example of John Seller's map double hemisphere map of the World, which appeared in his Atlas Maritimus beginning about 1675.

Seller's map is one of the first maps to mimic the style of Dutch World maps by Nicholas Visscher and other Dutch mapmakers of the second half of the 17th Century, although the choice of the two phases of the Moon and celestial models in the corners was a distinctive change from Dutch maps.

The model for the Moon is based upon Hevelius' chart, published in 1647.
