Cassini Maps have just launched a series of rare and beautiful historical maps carefully selected from the British Library Map Collection and now available as high quality framed prints from the Cassini Maps website.
Some of these maps, such as Rose’s Octopus Map of Europe, have been featured extensively in BBC Four’s recent TV programme, The Beauty of Maps.
The British Library’s Map Collection is a remarkable treasure trove brimming unique examples of some of the finest maps ever made.
The Collection includes Saxton and Speed British county maps from the late 16th and early 17th centuries as well as many historical British, European and world maps made by the finest cartographers of the day.
The maps are fascinating and important historical documents in their own right but really come into their own when framed and presented as highly decorative works of art.
Cassini is proud to bring you the chance of owning your own selected map print. The map will be printed, framed and sent to any address in the UK. Classic works of art delivered to your door.
