This map has been scanned From The ORIGINAL at 600 dpi using state of the art equipment {a Contex Large Format Scanner}. The replica map is printed on heavy matte fine art paper using archival pigment inks. This is one of over 5000 Original maps, charts and posters in our collection.
Many reproduction maps that are available on Etsy are taken directly from public domain sources {NY Public Library, Library of Congress, etc}. Although great for research purposes, these image files frequently suffer from poor color accuracy, lens blur and distortion. The maps in our collection have been scanned from the ORIGINAL, flat, at high resolution and with precisely calibrated color. This allows us to prints replicas that are virtually indistinguishable from the original maps.

Fantastic map! Arrived quickly and in excellent condition!

The map is absolutely beautiful- the blue is brilliant, even better than I had hoped. SO very pleased with this purchase! Thank you!!!

This is the second of this type of print that I have purchased from Old Map Company. It's based on a nautical chart. The southern section of the bay is really striking, showing all of the tributaries very vividly. The packaging and shipping were done exceptionally carefully. Thanks for the great work.
