This is a beautiful example of a Renaissance title page with classical mythological figures. The winged figure of Mercury is shown guiding a graceful figure of Geography who is accompanied by a chubby cherub. This sheet introduced the second part of this scarce Italian atlas.
Superb condition with wide original margins.
