632-Li Regni di Sicilia e Sardegna
Description: The map, measuring 56,6 x 43,4 cm and drawn by Giovanni Antonio Rizzi Zannoni, is taken from the Atlas Maior Scholasticus, printed by the heirs of Homann in 1762 in Nuremberg. It shows the Tyrrhenian Sea with the three most important Mediterranean islands, part of the Italian peninsula and the North of Tunisia. A splendid title picture appears on the bottom left; the graphic scales in Italian and Mediterranean miles are included in a beautiful picture in the centre-bottom. It is an important map introducing considerable improvements in the cartographic precisionof that period.
