Engraved frontispiece from an Italian version of Delisle's atlas published by Girolamo Albrizzi. The architectural framework is flanked by male and female Roman soldiers and at top a pair of putti hold aloft a red velvet drape. Cartouches contain a vignette of the city of Venice, where the atlas was published, and the symbol for the Society of Jesus.
There are some stains in the blank margins and the impression is a little weak.
