Description: Miniature map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 2 7/8" x 4".

Comments: This miniature map of Salzburg 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 features a charming trompe-l'oeil composition in which the political map itself, drawn on a scroll, rolls up at the corners to reveal a panoramic view of the city beneath it. The map is detailed with cities, rivers, lakes, and mountains. Scale in upper right corner and note in Latin in upper left. 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.
