Lovely little map of Lazio on Italy's central-west coast with the city of Rome shown at left. It extends to include Lake Bracciano and continues down the coast to Gaeta. Good topographical detail, including forested areas. Fucine Lake, which was drained in 1875, is prominently depicted at right. Adorned with a lovely strapwork cartouche and a unique distance scale on a stone monument. French text on verso.
