Superb and very scarce Italian map of Sicily is based on the cartography of Forlani. It is beautifully engraved in the Italian style with stipple seas and graphic depictions of the hills and volcanoes. This unusual map is from a rare 16th century Italian atlas of the 'Lafreri-School.'
A small printer's ink smudge in the margins, still fine.
