Description
France; Rosaccio / Magini / Tolomeo - Tabula Europae III° - 1581-1600
Original colored copper plate

This Map is an original 1599 copper engraving (16th century...).

This is the rare Ptolemaic edition by Magini, Rosaccio & Sessa, published in 1599 in their amazing work entitled: "La Geografia di Claudio Tolomeo Alessandrino, Tradotta di Greco nell'Idioma Volgare Italiano, da Girolamo Ruscelli, et hora nuovamente ampliata da Gioseffo Rosaccio....."

Beautiful map published in Venice, with wide margins, excellent water-colouring and very well detailed at every point.

The map is in very good condition, as per photos: it shows small signs of ageing, such as small cuts or harmless holes at the borders or central area, which do not affect the engraved area at all.

Map overall dimensions: 35 x 24 cm
