L’Impero Del Giapon. A. ZATTA.
Italian Map of Japan
[Venice, 1785]

L’Impero Del Giapon.

12 ½ x 16 inches. Fine hand color. Excellent condition.

Attractive 18th-century map of Japan. Zatta based his work on that of Bellin, whose 1736 map proved to be one of the most influential European depictions of Japan until the 19th century.   Zatta was a major publisher working in Venice during the second half of the 18th century.  He is highly regarded for his quality engraving and for his elegant illustrated books of Italian classics and maps.  The attractive cartouche on his map of Japan with its suggestive botanical flourishes is a fine example of his style.
