This lovely small map of Italy includes Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, and the Dalmatian coast. Details include mountains, rivers, political boundaries and key place names. The decorative title cartouche fills the upper right corner. The map was engraved by E. Dussy and the cartouche by Arrivet. This is the first state.

A crisp impression with original color in the map and later color in the cartouche. There is minor printer's ink residue west of Sicily and two small worm holes confined to the blank margins.
