Vintage Planisphere Map of the Old World Drink Coasters
The map of the world, from the eyes of Alberto Cantino in 1502
This is an early map, just when discoveries of the New World were being made, and not much was known of the landscape. The CANTINO PLANISPHERE was actually only the second known chart to show the New World. On many of our images, you can see a tip of land just north of Cuba, which is believed to be Florida, even though Florida had not officially been discovered at the time this map was created. The Cantino Planisphere map, made from six glued parchment sheets, is in the Biblioteca in Modena, Italy, and is in good condition.
This vintage planisphere is a wonderful image for our vintage gifts! It's a great gift for the loved ones in your life who are interested in history and historical map making.
