Title : [Moscovia.].
Date : Venice c.1595.
Size : 26.4 x 26.4 inches. / 67.0 x 67.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured

Description :The four top-right sheets from an extremely rare and finely rendered wall map of Europe, known only from a few example. Top left is Lapland, with the end of the Gulf of Finland, with the site of St Petersburg, a century before its founding and Archangel; top right should be Novaya Zemlya, but it is missing; bottom right is the course of the Volga, the Sea of Azov and the north coast o the Black Sea, with Tartar tents marked; bottom left is the Crimea, the mouth of the Danube, with Moscow, Kiev, Vilnius and Riga marked.
The map originally appeared in Camocio's atlas, the Quattro Parte Del Mondo which consisted of four wall maps of Asia, Africa, Europe, America and a small world map, copies of which are known to exist in the Museo Correr, Venice, Yale University Library and the James Ford Bell Library, Minnesota.
Camocio was one of the principal mapmakers of the Lafreri school, whose output signaled the transition between the maps of Ptolemy and the maps of Mercator and Ortelius, as such he is one of the founders of mapmaking as we know it today. It is a testament to the skills of the Venetian school of mapmakers, in its virtuoso execution and use of up-to-date geographical knowledge. ¤

Condition : Top left sheet: wormholes and wear to the margins have been repaired, and the top right corner of the map has been reinstated with mss fill affecting the printed border and sea area, at most 6cm x 7cm, also bottom right corner, 2cm by less than 1cm, a few worm holes in map area also filled.
Top right half-sheet: the bottom left corner reinstated 1.5 x 1cm, a few repairs to margins and wormholes. Bottom left sheet: trimmed into top edge for joining, repaired 12cm split in map area top left, 2m repaired tear in left margin, two repaired wormholes in margins.
Bottom right half-sheet: trimmed top & left for joining, two repaired tears in sea area, wormholes filled in margin. A good impression of a beautiful and exceedingly rare item.
