Arcipelago delle Antille ossia Indie occidentali. (America)
Napoli 1850 - Carta geografica tratta dal "Atlante Geografico corredato di notizie relative alla Geografia Fisica e politica." edito a Napoli nel 1854. Litografia, coloritura coeva dei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Benedetto Marzolla is famous for being among the most important cartographers of the XIX century, for being the one to print geographic maps using high quality lithographies. His Atlante Geografico, made of 58 maps, presents finely sketched works. Six maps depict North America, among them famous map of gold diggers in California, deriving from Hippolite Ferry. Extremely relevant are also the maps of Antarctic, South Africa with the plan of Cape Town and those about Australia. Though the maps are dated between 1843 and 1856, this 1858 edition, printed in Naples at the Stabilimento Geografico Strada San Carlo (founded by Marzolla himself), represents the final version of his atlas, the last one before his death. A posthumous edition will be published in 1865. The atlas is pretty rare, is not actually listed in Phillips, British Library e OCLC. Valerio, Benedetto Marzolla Brindisino, Geografo e Cartografo dell'800 Europeo, pag. 63, 165; Tooley,s Dictionary, p. 216. Dimensioni 605 430mm
