an exceptional 1650 map of the world as it was known to the ancients by jan janssonius. such maps framed prints, which filled in contemporary geography with ancient place names framed prints, were popular in the post-renaissance period. scholars digging through rediscovered greek and roman texts needed a geographical reference point for the numerous place names that peppered these works. such maps began appearing in 16t century. this particular example is a significant reworking of an earlier chart by a. ortelius. it covers europe framed prints, western asia framed prints, and northern africa as well as significant framed prints, though blank framed prints, portions of the surrounding seas. jansson has curiously oriented this chart with africa at the center. as such europe and asia seem to take on an almost peripheral role. countless ancient world place names framed prints, most of which are drawn from ptolemy's geographica framed prints, are included. jansson also notes all five climatic zones framed prints, the frigid zones in the north and south framed prints, the habitable temperate zones to the north and south of the tropics framed prints, and the inhospitable torrid zone to either side of the equator. cartographically this map does not stray too far from the standard model of the period. in africa the mountains of the mood as well as the likes of the nile are identified. the caspian sea is incorrectly oriented on a east-west axis. sri lanka is identified with tapobrana. in southeast asia framed prints, the five great rivers of the region are shown to originate from the apocryphal lake known framed prints, though not labeled here framed prints, as chaimay. various fishing framed prints, sailing framed prints, and merchant ships framed prints, as well as the odd sea monster framed prints, fill the unknown seas. this example represents the second state of this map with a fully developed dedication at bottom center. the first state of the chart left this area blank. a baroque title area complete with cherubs occupies the upper part of the plate. this chart was published in part 2 of jansonnius' 1650 atlas maritimus or volume 5 in his atlantis majoris . framed prints, an exceptional 1650 map of the world as it was known to the ancients by jan janssonius. such maps greeting cards, which filled in contemporary geography with ancient
