A handsome miniature map of the Marche region in central Italy along the Adriatic Sea. The capital of Ancona is shown centrally along the coastline, which extends from Rimini in the north to Sant' Angelo in the south, just shy of Pescara. The map is embellished with strapwork title and distance scale cartouches. French text on verso.
