Amsterdam: Pierre Mortier, 1710. A beautiful Dutch map of the Kingdom of Naples This map is from an edition of Frederick De Wit's maps made by Pierre Mortier about 1710. De Wit had brought to Dutch cartography a decorative flare and an appreciation for the Baroque that most of his contemporaries lacked. Here in his map of the Kingdom of Naples, putti hold up a banner of the handsome armorial shields of the various provinces and in the cartouche in the lower right display the arms of Naples. As one expects in a map by De Wit, the engraving is extremely fine (one can see a little eruption over Mount Vesuvius) and the calligraphy is distinct and readable. The Kingdom of Naples was rarely autonomous. At the time this map was issued, it was ruled by Hapsburg Austria, who occupied it during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1703. The Spanish re-conquered the kingdom during the War of the Polish Succession (1733-35). Koeman, Mor 12. Engraving with full, period colour. There is a crease parallel to the centerfold, otherwise, excellent condition.
