1630 World Map Jigsaw Puzzle
1000 pieces

Reproduction of Henricus Hondius (Dutch, 1597–1651) world map, 1630, from Novus Atlas, published by Jan Jansson in 11 vols., 1647–1662.

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.

This map is in the collection of The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. Building on Henry E. Huntington’s legacy, The Huntington encourages research and promotes education in the arts, humanities, and botanical sciences through the growth and preservation of its collections, through the development and support of a community of scholars, and through the display and interpretation of its extraordinary resources.

Published with the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, this 1,000-piece interlocking jigsaw puzzle combines superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
