Fine copper engraved map of the region around Rome that extends from Lago di Bolsena to Gaeta. Rome is depicted in a block plan with its fortifications evident. Elegant script lettering, sailing ship and a galley embellish the sea. Two lovely cartouches further decorate this handsome chart. German text on verso.
Beautiful impression on thick hand laid paper with wide margins. A little print show-through from heavy printing on verso, and a couple of marginal spots.
