An Exceptionally Lively Map
CORONELLI, V. [Venice, 1691] Isole Azzori, o Azzoridi.
17 ½ x 23 3/8 inches Excellent condition with a strong impression.
One of Coronelli’s most beautiful engravings. The map’s vibrant title cartouche consists of all manner of interwoven, nautical imagery, while the plan of Angra at lower left is set within a curtain hoisted by mermaids.
