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.

Dear Folks, It's good to see you on the World's Book Map. To Mr. Cohen and the member of his family I owe a great thank you for all the lessons "how to hold back straight". To all the members of the stuff -- a great thank you for help and assistance in all periods of a busy days and weekends. And to the good young Argosy, a great thank you for being there back in the 1970's & 1980! - V. Kharets
