C1750 MAPPAMONDO DESCRIZIONE GENERALE DEL GLOBO World Map ALBRIZZI

MAPPAMONDO O SIA DESCRIZIONE GENERALE DEL GLOBO TERRESTRE ED ACQUATICO. Striking example of Albrizzi's double hemisphere map of the World, one of the most interesting and decorative world maps to appear in a mid-18th Italian Century Atlas.

An elegant example of the Italian school of commercial cartography, the art work around the map having been done by important Italian artist Giovanni Battista Piazzetta ca. The cartographic content of the map, which is drawn from De L'Isle's. (1700), is secondary to the very beautiful, serene female figures in each corner representing the four continents. Batta Piaceta is shown as Inventor (left), and Guliano Giampicoli, as engraver (right). Albrizzi's maps are extremely scarce.
