$95.00$1,711.00

1784 Cook General Chart by Capt. James Cook is simply the first map of world with any pretense to accuracy. Other world maps of the time merely hinted at the landfalls of the Pacific. Capt. James Cook, mapped the Pacific over a period of 11 years (1769-1780) and 3 voyages (100,000 miles traveled). The original copperplate engraving is from Cook’s last voyage, originally published in 1784 by Strahan & Cadell of London. This is the most important and accurate world chart of the 18th century. Considered to be the first “Modern” World map.

What is a Mirrored Print & Gallery Wrap?

  example of Mirrored Print

Canvas for Gallery Wrap

Take a good look at your print. The edges are mirrored, so that, the complete image is shown on the face of the frame once it is wrapped. In other words, You don’t lose any of the artwork. Our 2½” mirrored borders, allow your finished product to have a variety of thickness up to 2” deep. Therefore, make sure you choose an experienced framer who can make the frame to the exact specs of your custom print.

Hand-made Rattan Frames

Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
