Copper engraving, mm 607x900, two-sheets map, already joined, of the continent engraved in the typical flamboyant Coronelli's style. From "Corso geografico" with no text on verso. The remarkable Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718), encyclopaedist, geographer, inventor and Doctor of Theology, was citizen of the Republic of Venice. He was also one of the most prominent mapmakers and publishers in Europe of his day.Vincenzo Coronelli, in addition to being an ordined Franciscan priest who eventually became Father General of his order, was also one of the most prominent mapmakers and publishers in Europe of his day. He was appointed official Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic in 1685, a year after he founded the world's earliest geographic society, "L'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti" in the same city. A good example with little foxing and some minor restorations in margins.
