About Pomegranate Antique World Map, 1630

Reproduction of Henricus Hondius (Dutch, 1597–1651) World map, 1630, from Novus Atlas, published by Jan Jansson in 11 vols., 1647–1662. Puzzle measures 29" x 20" when complete. Released June 2009.

This popular baroque-style map was originally designed as a frontispiece to Henricus Hondius’s 1630 revision of the long-lived Mercator/Hondius atlas, a work then being challenged by rival map publishers. The decorations include depictions of the four elements—earth, air, fire, and water—and portraits of Julius Caesar and cartographers Claudius Ptolemy, Gerard Mercator, and Jodocus Hondius Sr.
 
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, Pomegranate's interlocking jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and heirloom - quality construction to delight generations of puzzle solvers.

This puzzle is gorgeous: quality material and finish. Lots of compliments on social media after posting the finished product. Intermediate difficulty, but definitely not for beginners.

Just finished this puzzle with my 85-yr-old puzzle enthusiast dad. It was challenging due to the extremely small print, we had to use magnifying glasses to read the names for clues, but nevertheless enjoyable. Recommend.

Enjoyed working this puzzle. With such small details, it would have been nice to have a poster with a larger picture of the puzzle. I know my geography and studied Latin, but....lol. The quality, subtle coloring, and softness of shades and feel of the pieces made the puzzle relaxing while frustrating at the same time.
