Dimensions: 16.5 x 22 inches (42 x 55.9 cm)

This gorgeous large format map of Italy in antiquity was included in the atlas of John Blair, a fascinating oeuvre which was created for and dedicated to Augusta, Princess Dowager of Wales, in 1779.  The map depicts Italy, Corsica, Sardinia and parts of the Mediterranean, including Minora and part of Sicily.

The map is highly detailed with all geographical and topographical information including cities, towns, fortifications, rivers, lakes, bays, gulfs, islands and mountains. Blair’s aim was to provide an accurate chronology and history of the world from its creation to the year of Christ 1779, for it was his belief that too much time and attention were being spent on the study and discussion of historical events without a proper chronological framework in which to place them.

Condition This beautiful map is a bold impression in superb A condition on watermarked paper.
