Title: 'America Settentrional di N. Sanson di Abbeville '
A reduced, re-engraved, and somewhat revised Italian version of Sanson's 1657 map Amerique Septentrionale. This example is substantially revised, with Italian nomenclature and different cartographic features, including a second Sanson projection of California. The Northern coastline about California is completely unique from other editions, Terra Iesso is absent and the configuration of Florida is unique.
An interesting unrecorded variant from an Italian geography issued in the latter part of the 17th Century. See Burden 324 & McLaughlin 18, though this particular map is not referred to.
In very good condition, minor toning, but would frame well.
