Al-Idrisis world map, 1154 Featured Print

Al-Idrisis world map, 1154

Al-Idrisi's world map. This world map, known as the Tabula Rogeriana, dates from 1154, and is orientated with North at bottom. It was drawn by Muhammad Al-Idrisi (1100-1165), an Islamic and Andalusian scholar working for King Roger II of Sicily. It is considered to have been the most accurate world map for the next three centuries. Regions shown include Europe (lower right), the Mediterranean Sea (centre right), North Africa (upper right), the Arabian Peninsula (upper centre), the Black Sea and Caspian Sea (lower centre), and parts of Asia (left). This is a restoration and transliteration carried out in 1927 by the German scholar Konrad Miller (1844-1933)

17th century world map Featured Print

17th century world map

World map, published around 1664 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, by Dutch mapmaker Joan Blaeu (c.1599- 1673). The Latin title is Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula (new and accurate all world map). Blaeu's maps built on those made by Mercator and Hondius in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. The Blaeu maps emphasized fine art and colours, being the most expensive of the time. Two mapmakers are shown at upper right and upper left, together with a wide variety of mythical beings. The poorly-mapped regions include the far north and south, parts of the Americas (left-hand hemisphere), and the Far East. The western coast of Australia (New Holland) was discovered in 1616

Map of the City of Dublin, 1797

Map of the City of Dublin, Ireland. Published in 1797, this map includes details of the canals being built at the time. Canal Harbour (lower right) connects across bottom with the Grand Canal (lower left). The Royal Canal (upper right and a branch at upper centre) was a competing canal. Running across centre is the River Liffey. Borders of the city's wards are marked in coloured lines, with a key at lower right, next to the city coat of arms. The scale at lower left is in both English and Irish miles. In 1797, Ireland was ruled by Britain, and this map was published by the geographer to King George III and the Prince of Wales (the future King George IV)
