POURTRAICT DE LA MAGNIFIQUE CITE DE VENISE
Glorious and rare plan of Venise by Belleforest. Finely engraved woodblock. Fantastic border with Animals, demons, Vases, fruit etc.
The engraving is so good that all the houses , churches etc are discernable.
The plan appears to be newly engraved and not copied from the Munster.
Can find any other example of the superb map

Very good condition
