This full folio sheet focuses on the geography, politics, and military achievements of the Republic of Venice. The central map shows the Adriatic Sea flanked by Italy and the Balkans, with the Republic of Venice at top. At bottom left is an enlarged map of the region surrounding the Republic of Venice, and a counter-balancing map at top right shows the eastern Mediterranean and illustrates countries where the Republic of Venice has gone to battle. The three maps are surrounded by numerous coats of arms, an index of locations of cities on the maps, and French text describing the government and military pursuits of the Republic of Venice.
