In 1927, famed American painter N.C. Wyeth completed five murals entitled "The Romance of Discovery" for Hubbard Memorial Hall, the National Geographic Society's first formal library. This eye-catching Map of Discovery of the Western Hemisphere wall map is one of those five stunning murals. The historic routes of explorers sailing the seas to North and South America are depicted. Blending both the modern vibrancy of bright colors with an antique base, it is a truly unique piece of cartographic art.
The map is packaged in a two inch diamater clear plastic tube. The tube has a decorative label showing a thumbnail of the map with dimensions and other pertinent information.ISBN: 9781597750745
