This November Christie’s presents its inaugural Online Only cartography auction. Featuring rare maps and globes from the 16th century to the early 20th century, this sale charts the history of exploration and geographical discovery throughout the ages of discovery and enlightenment. From the pared-down beauty of early woodcut maps of Asia Minor, through to extremely accurate chartings of the Red Sea, the sale spans 500 years of map and globe production. The breadth and wide-scope of this sale presents exciting opportunities to acquire beautiful maps illustrated with sea monsters, as well as Georgian pocket globes lined with star charts of the night sky.
