Delightful little map of the Baden-Wurttemberg region, with Ulm located at the lower right along the Danube. Pietro Maria Marchetti produced the second pocket atlas based on Abraham Ortelius' folio Theatrum. It is often referred to as the plagiarized version of the Epitome. The copper plates are closely copied from those of Philip Galle's 1593 Italian edition. On a full sheet (5.5 x 7.5") of Italian text.

There is a small worm hole in the upper left corner of the plate, not affecting the map itself.
