Fine view of Osero in the Adriatic, on a full sheet with Latin text. Osero is reported to have been a town of Austrian Illyria, that was situated on an island of the same name and so near the island of Cherso as to be joined to it by a bridge. The bridge is evident here, but the island names appear to be reversed. Lasor a Varea was a pseudonym for Raphael Savonarola.
