Detailed map of northwestern Italy with Turin at bottom center. Fully engraved with mountains, rivers, fortifications, political boundaries, and hundreds of place names. It also depicts the roads, and most notably the "Grande Route des Romains." Two lovely cartouches embellish the map.
A nice impression with original outline color on watermarked paper. There is minor soiling and light toning along the edges of the sheet.
