Article descriptionCopper engraving, finely hand colored in wash and outline. The map shows the region 'Comitatus Molisy et Capitaneata.' around 1627. This rare historic map was engraved by Jodocus Hondius and was published here in this rare combination of an atlas and town book 'Nova et Accurata Italiae Hodiernae Descriptio ...' for the first time. This map is decorative ornated with a renaissance title cartouche and a small mileage scale. Further this antique map provides a lot of information on place names, rivers, lakes, mountains, etc. Along the coast we find many islands engraved. The map is decorative hand colored in wash and outline. Printed on good paper on the full sheet as published.
