Antique World Map 1,000-piece Jigsaw Puzzle

by Pomegranate

This popular baroque map was originally designed as a frontispiece to Henricus Hondius’s 1630 revision of the long-lived Mercator/Hondius atlas, a work then being challenged by rival map publishers. The decorations include depictions of the four elements—earth, air, fire and water—and portraits of Julius Caesar and cartographers Claudius Ptolemy, Gerard Mercator, and Jodocus Hondius Sr. This map is in the collection of The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino. Building on Henry E. Huntington’s legacy, The Huntington encourages research and promotes education in the arts, humanities, and botanical sciences. Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, our puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations.
Caution: Choking hazard—small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
