This antique map from 1665, titled ‘Melite Insvla’, depicts the island of Malta in the early 17th Century. Melite Insvla translates to ‘Island of Honey’, which is believed to be a reference to the island’s abundant honey production during ancient times.

In the early 17th Century, Malta was a strategically important location due to its location in the Mediterranean Sea. The island was under the rule of the Order of Saint John, who had transformed it into a bustling hub of trade and commerce. The island was also known for its impressive fortifications, which can still be seen today.

Despite its small size, Malta was a melting pot of cultures, with influences from Italy, Spain, and the Middle East all present. The island’s economy was primarily based on agriculture and fishing, with textiles and pottery also being important industries.

Giclée Print Feedback:

Absolutely stellar service! Whilst I was considering my purchase Callum was extremely helpful and friendly, taking the time to actually talk to me rather than keep to business – how refreshing and genuine! I made my purchase quite late in the evening and was surprised to receive notification that it had been dispatched the following day! Lo and behold, I received the print within 48 hours – a remarkably quick turnaround!

Certainly no need to worry about Christmas delivery times! As for the print I bought – perfect… exceptional quality, with fine detail captured without fault. It’s on nice thick paper and packaged with care. I’ll definitely be back for more – I’ve already eyed up my next one!
