Giacomo Gastaldi's Atlas of 1548 has been called the most comprehensive atlas, produced between Martin Waldseemüller's Geographiae of 1513, and the Abraham Ortelius Theatrum of 1570. Gastaldi's maps were beautifully engraved on copper, marking a turning point in the history of cartography. From that point forward, the majority of cartographic works used this method. As it was a harder material than wood, it gave the engraver the ability to give more details. Gastaldi sought the most up-to-date geographical information available and are among the earliest obtainable maps for regional collectors.
Condition : Copper engraving. Paper slightly browned due to earlier framing. Latin text on verso.
