Stato Della Repubblica di Genova Colle Confinanti Provincie
by ZATTA, Antonio
Venice: Antonio Zatta, 1799. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 12.5" x 15" Unusual folded, separate issue map by Antonio Zatta depicting the Republic of Genoa in incredible detail. Numerous towns are labeled and topography beautifully rendered. The independent state of Genoa existed from 1005 to 1797 until it was occupied by Napoleonic forces and replaced by the Ligurian Republic. It would later be annexed by the First French Empire and ultimately by the Kingdom of Sardinia in 1815. This map is in good condition with some wear and creasing along the folds. Printed on thin paper, map shows some edge wear. Small repair over bottom margin, not affecting printed image. Original platemark visible. Antonio Zatta (1775-1797) was the most prominent Italian map publisher of the late 18th century. His Venice-based publishing company produced maps that mark an important transition from 18th- to 19th-century cartographic styles. He updates and redefines the traditional title cartouche by replacing the mythic elements common in earlier maps with more representative images. (Inventory #: 268246)
