Vintage antique globe with a map from Jodocus Hondius


♥  Our Globus "Hondius" shows a mapping from the time of the 17th Century. The base shows a kite on which the globe is mounted. The card is printed well and offers an exceptionally beautiful reproduction of the map of Jodocus Hondius (1563 - 1612), a Flemish and publisher of atlases and maps.

The globe is a replication of the maps originally produced in a complicated gravure printing process which offers a distinctive edge to the lines, words and symbols. The globe itself is like the old originals from papier-mâché made​​.


Legendary cartographer, Joducus Hondius, worked in Amsterdam during the 1600s, then one of the worlds commercial hubs. Spin the world and enjoy a touch of true history. Galleons sailing oceans to the farthest corners of the known world. Exotic cultures, languages, people and goods to be traded, bought and sold. Gold and ivory, spices and silks.


Size 13.40 x 12.60 x 17.30 "
