A charming old map of Ancient Greece, engraved by JC Walker and published by the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK) in 1829. Yes... the SDUK was a real thing. They distributed maps and other educational materials at reasonable prices, so that Victorian Britons could enlighten themselves.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (30x40cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 50 inches (125cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.
Please note that the unframed 24x30 inch map has small white strips on each side that can be easily snipped off - or they may help you with framing. All other maps, and framed maps, look like the listing images.
The map shows Ancient Greece (or at least, the southern part) as it was in roughly the 12th to 9th centuries BC. A lovely inset map in the bottom left corner shows a close-up of the modern day remains of Ancient Athens.
Crete looks lovely on this map, as do Zakynthos, and the Cyclades and Sporades island archipelagos in the Aegean Sea.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain town or village is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift for someone from Greece or who is interested in the history of Ancient Greece.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes the map pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. I use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in my frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
