Italy media sive propria. 1755 Map of Antique Geography

by Christopher Keller (Cellarius)

Ancient Geography map of central Italy - Etruria, Tuscia (Tuscany).. Italia media five propria.

Original copperplate-engraved map on hand-made paper, published for the 1755 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. While the 1732 edition was larger and more attractively presented with each map embellished by a decorative ancient-period cartouche (title piece), the maps of this 1755 edition were identical geography, in the wonderful larger format.

In good condition, this map would have been published in black and white. It has fine later hand-tinting with watercolour, that certainly adds to the attractiveness of the map.

Size of the map to the engraved border is 205 x 310mm.
