Carta geografica trata dal "Atlas Universel." edito a Parigi nel 1750. Inserita nel cartiglio in basso a destra la carta dell'arcipelago di Malta. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in buono stato di conservazione. This is an attractive 1750 map of southern Italy by Robert de Vaugondy. It covers the southern regions of the territories claimed by the Kingdom of Naples and extends from Agropoli south to include the island of Sicily. An inset in the bottom right quadrant features the Isle of Malta. Mt. Etna, the tallest active volcano in the region, is beautifully rendered. Sicily became a Greek colony around 750 BC and according to Greek mythology, the monster Typhon, is trapped under Mount Etna. Several important towns, cities, roads, rivers, lakes and other topographical features are noted throughout. A beautifully illustrated title cartouche adorns the top left quadrant of the map as well as the bottom right quadrant of the inset. This map was drawn by Robert de Vaugondy in 1750 and published in the 1757 issue of his Atlas Universal. The Atlas Universal was one of the first atlases based upon actual surveys. Therefore, this map is highly accurate (for the period) and has most contemporary town names correct. 625 490mm. Buchnummer des Verkäufers S14092
