Small copper engraving of central Italy.
This tiny map depicts the western coast of Italy from Pisa to Rome, extending inland to Florence. The extensive river system is shown along with many towns, and the island of Elba appears off the coast. Italian text on verso.
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.
