Title : Germania Parte Occidentale, Dedicata Al Reuerendissimo Padre D. Serafino Pasolino Nella Congreg Lateranense ….
Map maker : CORONELLI, V.
Date : Venice, 1692.
Size : 30.0 x 20.5 inches. / 76.2 x 52.0 cm.

Description :Detailed map of Western Europe by Vincenzo Coronelli, showing the western portion of the Holy Roman Empire. Includes regions of northern Italy, Switzerland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.
The French region of Normandy is in the eastern section of the map, the towns of Lyon, France to Como and Brescia, Italy, are shown along the lower portion, and the towns of Ulm, Rotenberg, Gottingen and Lubeck, Germany are shown along the east edge. A decorative title cartouche is at the upper left corner, and an additional cartouche with a distance key is at the bottom left. The map is dedicated to Serafino Pasolino, an Italian abbot.

Accompanying text with 2 town view illustrations of Kiel, Germany and the Island of Gotland, Sweden are on the verso. This is the left portion of a two part map, the other portion of this map is listed in the auction as well.
Coronelli was both a cleric and an encyclopedist, with a particular interest in geography and cartography. In 1681 Coronelli served as Royal Cartographer to King Louis XIV in Paris, gaining special access to the most current records on world geography sent in from the colonies, and provided by the French Academy of Sciences. Coronelli returned to Venice in 1684 and founded the Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti, a geographical society with membership drawn from the aristocracy and church hierarchy, and a year later he was appointed Cosmographer to the Republic of Venice.
He also started a successful publishing career, and was sole author or contributor to over 140 titles and produced several hundred maps, either printed separately or as parts of atlases. By the end of the 17th century, Coronelli was perhaps the most famous map publisher in Europe and received constant requests from his contemporaries for information that would enable them to bring their atlases up to date.
Condition : Some wrinkling and discoloration along left edge. A small puncture, approximately 1/2 inch in diameter, is in the top paper margin.
