recent arrival
A scarce, attractive but very basic woodcut map of the British Isles from Giuseppe Rosaccio's atlas, "Il mondo ...". very crudely engraved and with relatively little detail, the map first appeared in a Florence publication reissued into the eighteenth century. This map is of a second version of that Florence publication with just minor alterations published in Bologna. According to Shirley, the outline and the place names are based loosely on those found on portolani, sea charts of the period. Although various editions of the atlas were also published in Verona, Treviso and Venice up until 1724, these maps are not common.
