Italy antique map Latii Utriusque delineatio. Cellarius c1732

by Christopher Keller (Cellarius)

Ancient geography of Italy from Rome to the west coast. Antique map by Cellarius. London, c1732.

Original copperplate-engraved map on hand-made paper, published for the 1732 edition of Geographia Antiqua (Antique Geography) by German Scholar Christopher Keller (known as Cellarius) (1632-1707). First published by Cellarius in 1686, this work was reissued many times, until 1812. The 1732 edition was larger and more attractively presented. Many of the maps had decorative cartouche title pieces. This wonderful cartouche shows grand buildings of Rome, fire and smoke, and the army on horseback.

This map is in very good condition. Although it would have been published in black and white, the additional fine later hand-tinting with watercolour certainly adds to the attractiveness of the map. Size: 205 x 310mm.
