Description: Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 14.5" x 18.5".

Comments: Stunning map of Ancona and the eastern coast of Italy. Shows geographical features in great detail, with the ocean waves in Mercator's signature style and ornate architectural cartouches. Small tear to bottom edge and slight chip to left edge. Magini (1555-1617) was an Italian humanist and professor of astronomy. This rare map was published in his seminal work, "Italia", the first printed atlas of Italy. Although he had been compiling the atlas since 1594, Magini died before its publication. His son Fabio continued his efforts and the first edition was eventually printed by Sebastiano Bononi. For much of the 17th century "Italia" was hailed as the leading primary source of regional Italian maps and their continued use by notable mapmakers such as Blaeu and Ortelius sustained Magini's legend.
