Atlante Novissimo., 1777.. Northern Portugal. Copper engraving. Original colour. Fine condition, good margins. Size: 42 x 33 cm. (16� x 13 inches) Map of the northern half of Portugal, with attractive cartouche at lower right, showing moored ship with its cargo of barrels unloaded on the shore, next to a stone tablet on which is written the title. Antonio Zatta was one of the leading cartographers and publishers of the time, and his Atlante Novissimo was one of the most beautifully produced of 18th century atlases. He drew on the work of other cartographers- such as Captain Cook, for his maps of New Zealand and Australia, Robert de Vaugondy, Bellin, and developed his own distinctive elegant style.
