This graphic map of the Old World is dedicated to Jacobo Marcello. The map is based on classical geography, covering Europe, most of Africa and part of Asia. The signs of the zodiac, climatic zones and other types of information form rings around the map, which is then set in a boldly engraved background with the dedication cartouche and the Venetian coat of arms.
Toned at centerfold with damp stains at top and bottom fold.
