More Information

The Map of the World created in 1587 by Urbano Monte is a remarkable work of art that presents the world as it was understood during the Renaissance era. This fascinating map was created over a period of several years and is one of the most detailed and accurate world maps of its time. The map features stunning hand-drawn images of animals, sea monsters, and ships, as well as intricate illustrations of cities and other landmarks. The continents are also depicted with an impressive level of accuracy, considering the limited knowledge of the world at that time.

This map is an exceptional example of early cartography. It was composed of 60 sheets that together form a complete image of the world as it was known at the time. The map is notable for its remarkable detail and artistic style, featuring elaborate illustrations and decorations throughout. It is also one of the earliest examples of a map to depict the entire world on a single sheet, reflecting the increasing awareness and understanding of global geography during the Renaissance period. The map is a testament to the skill and ingenuity of Monte, as well as to the significant advances in mapping and navigation that were taking place during this time.

What our customers are saying


I purchased an historic map, 16x24 inch. It is beautifully printed on heavy stock. The lettering, colors, and details of the map are crisp and easy to read. I am highly satisfied and would certainly purchase from Historic Pictoric again!

Kent A.

Ordered the Pan American Midway print to fit a lovely thrift-store gilded frame. I love showing off Buffalo's rich history and this is a pretty entertaining photo from 1901. Prompt shipping. Sturdy packaging.

Cindy O.

I received my print within days of ordering, and it arrived well packed in a mailing tube. The print is high quality and exactly as advertised. I will use Historic Pictoric again in the future!

Cheryl H.

Excellent product. Great fidelity in reproduction of the original. Fine/minute details were sharp, colors were vibrant, and thickness, texture and overall feel and quality of the paper were excellent. Very satisfied with my purchase.

Konrad B.

I have purchased six maps from Historic Pictoric. I find the quality to be excellent. Their customers service is also excellent. Outstanding! I called to exchange a few for different sizes and I could not have asked for a better experience.

Aaron C.

The original map I ordered lacked some of the detail that I had hoped for, but they responded with several more map possibilities to choose from. Excellent service- a far step beyond what anyone expects from online purchases.

Dan M.

I am a owner of 5 maps from Historic Pictoric. From Okinawa, 1945, Europe 1940-1945 battle maps. Now they’re helping me with the battle of Gettysburg. These maps are so much superior to the map on a page in a book. I have framed two of them.

Steven Ko

Great heavy paper quality and clarity of my nautical map. Will be a great addition to our home close to the beach!

What is Infinity Framing?

Wow Factor

Infinity frame

The image is printed on a durable fabric, which is stretched inside a slim aluminum frame. It’s transportable, interchangeable, and easy to assemble. Our infinity frame pieces for large sized prints will lend a “wow” factor to your space.

Better than Canvas

The colors in our fabric prints are crisp and true to life, with a matte, glare-free finish. With our printing process, the colors permeate the fabric, rather than settling on top, which reduces the risk of scratching or fading. Your art will last a long time!

Easy to Install

Assemble the frame in minutes, insert the fabric print into the grooves, and your art is ready to hang!

Statement Piece

Easy and modern way to display large art in your home or office
