POURTRAICT DE LA MAGNIFIQUE CITE DE VENISE

£850

Glorious and rare plan of Venise by Belleforest. Finely engraved woodblock. Fantastic border with Animals, demons, Vases, fruit etc.

The engraving is so good that all the houses , churches etc are discernable.

The plan appears to be newly engraved and not copied from the Munster.

Legend below.

Superb hand colour

Very good condition

Map much better than photo on website
