This handsome map of the island of Corsica is based on the work of Agostino Giustiniani in 1567. The map is embellished with a strapwork cartouche, a distance scale, and a fully stippled sea. This map was originally printed on a folio sheet with two additional maps of the Tuscan and Ancona regions in Italy.
