This fine map of Venice is on two pages and would be convenient for modern day tourists who want to understand the major layout of the city. The upper left has a view of the square in front of the Doge’s Palace, as seen from the Giudecca titled “View of the Mint, St. Mark’s Church, The Palace, &c.” In the upper right is an inset of the region around Venice titled “Plan of the Environs of Venice Shewing the Lagunes, &c., &c., &c.” and shows its location on the Gulf of Venice on the Adriatic Sea. At the bottom of the map are line drawings with elevations of 12 principal buildings including St. Mark’s, the Mint, and a number of other churches and palaces. This is a steel plate engraving with original color parks in green, canals in blue.
Condition: Very good condition.
