A small and interesting woodblock map from the 1724 Bologna reprint edition of "Teatro Del Mondo". This particular map was first published in the 1595 Florence edition of Giuseppe Rosaccio's "Teatro Del Cielo E Della Terra", the volume itself first appeared in 1590. Six windheads are shown outside the map. Inside, the equator and the tropics are named, as are many countries. The Great Southern Continent covers much of the lower part of the map. A new woodblock was used for this the 1724 edition. Although a very late issue of a simple map, this has a certain charm.
