Antique small map titled "The World as known to Ptolemy", 1835, published by Joseph Thomas, London. The measurements are 5" by 6" inside the tasteful maroon map (10 1/4" by 11 1/4" framed). There is hand coloring in red outlining most of Europe. The map is very clean. Mat at lower extreme right has a bit of puckering/creasing. You could replace if so desire but most viewers would not notice this. Ptolemy was a Greco-Egyptian astronomer, geographer and mathematician who lived in Alexandria, Egypt from 85 A.D. to 165 A.D. He espoused a geocentric (earth-centered) view of the universe and solar system, which was replaced only in 1543 by Copernicus' theories about the sun being the center of the solar system.
