An attractive miniature Ortelius World map from an Italian edition pocket atlas. Copying the maps produced in the Low Countries, Pietro Marchetti published "Il Theatro Del Mondo" with two world maps. Published in several later seventeenth century issues this is apparently from an edition of 1677, as suggested by the slightly "light" printing, nevertheless an attractive miniature.
