First separate edition, including 43 exceptionally fine maps, plans and views, of which 26 are double-page, by Andrea Scacciati, G.M.Terreni, Giuseppe Pazzi, D.V.Rossi, Violante Vanni and N. Mabraini.

The maps and text were first published together in "Il Gazzettiere Americano" (Livorno: M. Coltellini, 1763), the text was translated from the American Gazetteer (London 1762).

With America in the throes of revolution (1775-1783) the attention of Europe was focused sharply upon her, and a number of books and atlases were published on the subject, particularly in Italy.

Probably the most famous of these is Raynal and Zatta's "Storia dell' America Settentrionale", however Masi's "Atlante dell'America" contains some beautiful maps and views of the major coastal ports, islands.
The double-page maps include: North and South America; New England, New York and Pennsylvania; the Great Lakes; Quebec; Hudson Bay; Pensacola; St. Augustine, Florida; The West Indies and the Gulf of Mexico; Cuba; Havana; St. Domingo and Hispaniola; city plan of St. Domingo; Jamaica; Guadalupe; Martinique; Barbados; Granada; Porto Bello; Cartagena, Santa Maria and Venezuala; city of Cartagena; San Francisco; the Amazon River; Lima; Paraguay; San Salvador.
There are full-page maps of Boston harbour; New York and New Jersey harbours; Niagara Falls; Gulf of St. Lawrence; Newfoundland; Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; Vera Cruz; Acapulco; Yucatan; Darien; Chagres River, Panama; South America; Cusco; Santiago in Chile.
And with fine views of : Quebec; New Mexico; St. Eustacious (Statia); and Potosi.
