13 x 18 ¼ inches, Fine original color, refreshed; some filled marginal worming, else excellent condition.
A finely engraved general map of Italy that appeared in the first atlas of Italy published in Italy. It depicts Italy with place names that were in use during the Roman Imperial Period of the Second Century A. D. While closely based on a map by Gerard Mercator from his definitive edition of Ptolemy’s geography, the map’s engraving has an undeniable Italianate flair.
