Copper engraving, hand colored in outline when published. This antique map shows Europe with his neighboring countries. Inside the map are many place names, rivers, mountains, etc. In the upper right corner we find the allegoric title cartouche and in the lower right corner a cartouche with the mileage scale. At the lower left corner we see a inset map which shows the 'Fortunatae Insulae', the Canary Islands. An interesting variant state of this map of the Roman empire by Robert de Vaugondy; the privilegium „Regis ordin. 1752. Cum privilegi", which appeared in the cartouche in 1752 was removed. The privilegium of the king gave the publisher normally the right to print that map for 10 years. Therefore the map might be printed short after 1762, but not later then 1779, when the Santini edition appeared first.
