Beautiful little card

Small copper engraving of the Rome area.

This charming miniature map is centred on Rome with north oriented to the left. The map depicts the rivers, towns, and topography in the surrounding province. Pietro Maria Marchetti produced the second pocket atlas based on Abraham Ortelius' folio Theatrum. It is often referred to as the plagiarised version of the Epitome. The copper plates are closely copied from those of Philip Galle's 1593 Italian edition. Italian text on verso.
