This is from the Italian edition of De Vaugondy's beautiful atlas. Four queens represent the continents and Apollo gallops across the heavens in his chariot. At center a group of adorable putti circle around a large globe. Large exquisite example of mid-eighteenth century design and engraving.
Fine impression and very nice later color.
