Title : L' Italie, Dressee sur les Observations de Mrs. De L' Academie Royale des Sciences...
Map maker : OTTENS, R. / J..
Date : Amsterdam, c. 1744.
Size : 18.1 x 21.7 inches. / 45.9 x 55.1 cm.
Colouring : Original o/l colour.

Description :A decorative map of Italy, including Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, part of the Mediterranean Sea, and portions of the neighboring countries of Slovenia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia. A Baroque cartouche depicts two seated female figures and putti. The woman on the left holds an incense burner, the one on the right rests one arm on a book while holding a tall crucifix, and with the other hand holds what appears to be a glowing goblet.
At the bottom, a putti places a bishop's miter upon another.
The map is based on the geography of Guillaume De l'Isle and the observations of the astronomer Riccioli. To the left a scale cartouche.
The address of Ottens in the title cartouche is clearly reworked. Reinier and Joshua Ottens acquired plates from Danckerts and other map makers and reissued the maps with their address.

Condition : Printed on heavy paper. Good impression. In fine body colour, cartouches uncoloured as issued. Very good condition.


ID: 27943
