Clementoni High Quality Collection Antique Map 1000 Piece Puzzle #31229.
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.
