This attractive map describes ancient Tuscany after Ortelius, whose map was based on Bellarmati's map supplemented by classical sources. There are numerous small islands off the coast, as well as a bit of northern Corsica. A strapwork title cartouche adorns the map that was engraved by Petrus Kaerius.
Minor soil in the blank margins.
