Description: Miniature map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 2 15/16" x 4".

Comments: This miniature map of the southern coast of France 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 is strangely oriented upside-down with north to the lower left, extending east to west roughly from Martigues to Narbonne. Cities are labeled, and rivers and forts are drawn with great care. A small ship and title cartouche with cherub heads complements a graphic compass rose. The map is in good condition with no chips or tears and light staining to edges. Wormhole in upper left margin not affecting the image. Foredges inked in red and Italian text on verso. Giovanni Turrini was an Italian publisher based in Venice. Scarce.

I can't begin to thank you for the personal care and attention you all gave to me on Saturday - when I came to Argosy during your tech breakdown. I love the four marvelous books I purchased for my nephew and the generous wrapping you provided. I shall always remember the experience and look forward to seeing you again soon. With appreciation! - Leigh C.
