This finely engraved and very detailed map covers the entire country and includes Sardinia and Corsica, part of Sicily, the Adriatic Sea and the western Dalmatian coast. It is embellished with a highly decorative title cartouche with allegorical figures on a cloud background.
Sharp impression and lovely color. The binding trimmed margin at lower right has been extended to better accommodate framing.
