Handsome map of central Italy showing the regions of Lazio and Abruzzo with a small bit of Molise. The spine of the Apennines runs along the middle of the map, with pictorial representations of cities and topography. The map is decorated with two strapwork cartouches and a moiré patterned sea. Latin text on verso.
Condition Description: A nice impression with attractive color, two tiny holes in the image, and two short tears that have been closed on verso with archival material. There is moderate foxing in the blank margins, with just a few spots of foxing in the image.
