Description: Miniature map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 3" x 4 3/16".

Comments: This miniature map of Egypt belongs to a period of great cartographic interest in the early-to-mid 17th century. Conscious of the great popularity of Abraham Ortelius's miniature atlas, which the famous cartographer first published in 1577, Giovanni Turrini produced a now-rare Italian version of the atlas, "Il Teatro del Mondo," in which this map was included. It shows the Nile River Delta as it drains into the Mediterranean, as well as part of the Red Sea. Pictograms for forts and churches dot the shores of the water, showing how central the river was to the development of the region. The map is in very good condition with no chips or tears and light staining to edges. Foredges inked in red and Italian text on verso. Giovanni Turrini was an Italian publisher based in Venice. Scarce.
