An appealing map of Lombardy centered on Milan, with the River Po below and Lake Como above. The map is filled with small towns and cities, and Milan is depicted with a miniature plan of the city. Attila, King of the Huns who pillaged Lombardy in 452 is shown above the title cartouche at upper right along with a hunting scene and two putti. Blank verso.
Nice impression and color with faint centerfold toning. There are two damp stains - one at the distance scale and the other in the right blank margin. There are a few repairs made on verso confined to the lower blank margin.
