This is a scarce Italian map of the Bay of Pozzuoli graphically engraved to illustrate the region with detail right down to the individual homes and gardens. At left is a large cartouche dedicating the map to Ferdinando Spinelli.
Narrow right margin, as issued, with slight loss of neatline at bottom. Several damp stains and a couple of extraneous folds. Would benefit from professional conservation.
