Difference between historical maps and historical prints

The terms historical map and historical print are often used interchangeably. But there is indeed a difference between the two. The historical map has the sole function of a map of the world, a country or the city. Geometry was applied to a historical map, a map had a scientific character. In the 18th and 19th centuries, these historical maps became very accurate and increasingly accurate. You can buy historical maps from us of the different centuries.

Historical prints, on the other hand, are real images of, for example, a city or village view. A scene is displayed. In the historical print, the perspective was played with. Whereas with a historical map some important buildings could not be captured in one and the same image, this was possible with a print.
