This is a great early plan view of 16th century Rome and the Vatican City. Monuments of the ancient city, such as the Coliseum, the Pantheon and the aqueducts are also shown. German text on verso with an interesting illustration of three naked witches.
Condition Description: Very light soiling with two worm tracks at bottom that have been closed on verso with old paper - one of which just touches the neatline and the other enters less than 1/2" into image.
