Thomas Jefferson was considered by many to be a worldly, well-traveled man, so it is unsurprising that he had an interest in maps, some of which still exist today. Among his collection were maps of Virginia, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the United States. Hendrix Hondius’ 1630 world map is reminiscent of Jefferson’s era, during which cartography reshaped understanding of the world and its people. Hondius’ map is reproduced behind beveled glass on this handsome box, great for storing jewelry or stashing remotes. Beveled mirrored sides, black sueded lining, felted bottom. 2 3/4"h x 8"w x 6"d.
