This antique map, created in 1665, is titled ‘Tractvs Borysthenis Vulgo Dniepr et Niepr dicti, a civitate Czÿrkassi ad ostia…’ which translates to ‘The Dnieper and Nieper Rivers, from the city of Cherkasy to the estuary’.

In the early 17th century, Ukraine was a diverse region with a mix of different cultures and languages. It was ruled by different powers, including the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Ottoman Empire, and the Crimean Khanate. The map shows the Dnieper and Nieper Rivers, which were important trade routes for the region, as well as the surrounding areas, including Moldova. The cities of Mykolaiv, Kherson, and Voskresenske are located centrally on the map. Overall, the map provides a fascinating glimpse into Ukraine’s past and the complex political and cultural landscape of the region during

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!
