Description :Coronelli's scarce map of Hungary & Serbia published by Nolin. The huge 45 cm. cartouche includes the title, scale and advertising by Nolin of his maps. It depicts the Hapsburg army breaching the fortified walls of an Ottoman held city.
Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (1650 - 1718) was an important 17th century cartographer and globe maker based in Venice. Coronelli was apprenticed as a woodcut artist and joined the Franciscan Order. Coronelli excelled in the fields of cosmography, mathematics, and geography and though his works include the phenomenal “Atlante Veneto”, Coronelli is best known for his globes.
In 1678 Coronelli was commissioned to make his first major globes by the Duke of Parma. Each superbly engraved globe was five feet in diameter. Louis IV of France, having heard of the magnificent Parma globes, invited Coronelli to Paris where he constructed an even more impressive pair of gigantic globes measuring over 12 feet in diameter and weighing 2 tons each. Coronelli returned to Venice and continued to published globes, maps, and atlases which were admired all over Europe for their beauty, accuracy, and detail. At the height of his career, Coronelli founded the world's first geographical society, the Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti and was awarded the official title Cosmographer of the Republic of Venice.
Coronelli's work is notable for its distinctive style, which is characterized by high quality white paper, dark intense impressions, detailed renderings of topographical features in profile, and numerous cartographic innovations.
Condition : With total re-margining and centerfold supported and backed. Several foxing spots and age toning.
