Gorgeous little map of central Italy showing the regions of Lazio and Abruzzo with a small bit of Molise. The spine of the Apennines runs along the middle of the map, with pictorial representations of cities and topography. The map is decorated with a charming strapwork cartouche atop a scale of miles. German text on verso.

A nice impression with light, scattered foxing that is confined to the blank margins.
