Title : Rodi [View of Rhodes].
Map maker : ROSACCIO, Giuseppe..
Date : Venice, Giacomo Franco, 1598.
Size : 3.9 x 6.9 inches. / 9.8 x 17.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Very rare view of the City of Rhodes on the island of Rhodes. Historically, Rhodes island was very famous worldwide for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Medieval Old Town of the City of Rhodes has been declared a World Heritage Site.

Published in the first edition of "Viaggio da Venetia, a Costantinopoli. Per Mare, e per Terra, & infieme quello di Terra Santa. Da Gioseppe Rosaccio con brevita descritto".

Several of the maps and plans resemble those in G. F. Camocio's "Isole famose", in particular the maps of the individual Greek islands, among which are Corfu, Crete, Cyprus, together with a map of Palestine and a view of Jerusalem.
It is possible that many of the plates may originate from 1590-1597, when they seem to have appeared first in a little-known work "Raccolta da disegni di tutte le citta et fortezze di mare che sono nel viaggio a Costantinopoli" [Venice (1597?)]. They were probably engraved by Natale Bonifacio.

Rosaccio (c.1530-1620) produced many small format atlases and geographical works, as well as works on astrology and astronomy.
