1612966146Code 619 Antique world mapWorld map published in June 1783 by Stackhouse and engraved by S.J. Neele. It is a geographical map printed by engraving on a copper plate, coeval coloring, which depicts the entire earth's surface divided into two parts that correspond to the two hemispheres. The map is significant because it is complete with the routes relating to the travels of the English astronomer and navigator James Cook in the 18th century. Good condition, some cracks on the left side, beautiful non-coeval frame of cherry wood. With frame 93.8x54.5 cm - 36.9x21.4 inches, thickness 2 cm - 0.78 inches.

Samuel John Neele (1758-1824) was an important British engraver and cartographer, known to have produced maps and portraits. He operated a print shop in London with his sons between 1782 and 1833. Trade engraver, with business in the Strand, produced also illustrations and financial documents. He worked for prominent cartographers and publishers such as Faden, Laurie, Stackhouse, Thomson and others. He engraved maps for "Lake District Maps" by Crosthwaite (along with Ashby and Ellis), "New Map of Ireland, Civil and Ecclesiastical" Daniel August Beaufort in 1792, and for atlases such as the "New General Atlas" and "Atlas of Scotland" by Thomson in 1817, "Atlas Of England And Wales" by Robin in 1819 and "Geological Map of England and Wales" by Greenough.

Today it is often mis-used the word "world map" to indicate the item that cartographers call "globe", that is the representation of the Earth through a sphere; instead a world map is a geographical representation of the world in plan, and it is an expression dating back to the Middle Ages (mappa mundi). Historians have different opinions on what may be regarded as the oldest cartographic documents, but one of them is a clay tablet discovered in 1930 at the ruins of the village of Ga-Sur, about 200 miles at the north of the site of Babylon, and attributed at the time of the dynasty of Sargon of Akkad (2300-2500 BC), and which represents two hills cut by a river.
