Splendid map of Tuscany based on the regional map of Giralomo Bellarmati. The map extends to include Rome in the lower right corner. It is richly embellished with an ornate title cartouche and a variety of ships. French text on verso.

A nice impression with gilt highlights on a bright sheet with a bunch of grapes watermark and a few tiny mildew stains along the centerfold.
