Or go back in time a little further with the World Antique Wall Map 1664, an amazing reproduction of an antique classic this map shows artwork by Joan Blaeu, 1596-1673. This antique map has been altered and restored from an original map image provided by the Library of Congress, Geography and Map Division.
