Antique World Maps Puzzle

This popular baroque-style 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.

Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, Pomegranate’s interlocking jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and heirloom – quality construction to delight generations of puzzle solvers.
