Description: Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 14.25" x 18.5".

Comments: Fantastic map of Rome and its environs. Geographical details including bodies of water, mountains and forests are beautifully depicted. Map also features lavish ornamental cartouches, ships in the stippled ocean and a vignette of the iconic image of Romulus, Remus and the wolf. Several small wormholes mainly along centerfold. 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.

I recently purchased a book from you, having searched via the internet. The book came yesterday and this note commends your service and quick response. I was impressed with the care taken to wrap the book with tissue paper and several layers of corrugated cardboard, as well as the speed with which you must have sent it out. It arrived only a week after the order, in spite of the Thanksgiving holiday. I thank you for the attention paid to the quality of my order and hope we will do more business. - Steve C.
