Beautiful Free Printable Antique North America Map (circa. 1652)

WoW! The things that this could be used for are limitless!  This is a gorgeous antique map of North America said to be from the year 1652.  It comes from the days pre-Lewis and Clark, note that most of the NW is a blank, and California as well as the bottom half of Florida are islands! Awesome! :)  Finds like this make me smile!

This map is so stunning that it could easily be printed and matted to be hung as a lovely piece of wall art.  This could be a part of a history lesson for my homeschool moms out there, for any history teacher for that matter!  Scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, done up as a book cover, edited to make stationary...this royalty free image is to awesome for words and with more potential uses than I have words!  :)

There are directions on the left hand side of the page for how to save, but to save you the time of having to look for said directions (it's hard to take your eyes off of the map) I will tell you that it's as simple as finding the image (this one is the second image on the page, the other is lovely too), right clicking and "save image as".  Have fun with this one!
