First state (unknown before) of this spectacular town-plan of Venice published engraved by Stefano Scolari, after the Bernardo Salvioni (1597) plan of Venice. It's the first state of the J. Schulz, "The Printed plans and panoramic views of Venice (1486-1797). (1970): p. 61, nn. 60-63 and Moretto (2001): nn. 53, 110. First catalogued as Valegio/Doino and then Scolari. But this example, without the address.

This gorgeous birdís-eye view of Venice gives a taste of how this city existed during the seventeenth century. Buildings are shown as well as several travelling vessels including gondolas and ships. Other topographical features as also featured.

An index found at the bottom half of the item shows numbers and names landmarks and other places of interest. As well, two insets below the plan show "La Plazza di S. Marco" and "Il Novo Ponte di Rialto", both rendered with stunning accuracy.

Stefano Scolari (1598-1650) was a little-known publisher who was known for his cartographic work, done primarily after Dutch originals. He worked primarily in Venice.
A unique opportunity to acquire a fine example from an town view from the Lafreri school. [+]
Reference: Schulz (1970): p. 61, nn. 60-63 and Moretto (2001): nn. 53, 110.
