Lovely map of ancient Italy including Corsica, Sardinia and Sicily. Fully engraved to illustrate topography with ancient place names. Two decorative cartouches feature mythical figures and putti.
Dark, early impression with some layout lines still visible. Paper laid in at binding trim lower left. A slight amount of light foxing mostly in lower right margin. The early impression makes this a visually striking example.
