Description:
Ann Lea took over her deceased husband Philip's business in 1701, and for the next twenty-five years managed the firm with various partners, including Robert Morden, Christopher Browne, William Berry and her son-in-law Richard Glynne. She published the map displayed here with Morden and Browne while she was in business "at the sign of Atlas and Hercules" in Cheapside, London. Part of a composite atlas, this map reflects the region of northern Italy with various duchies, or dukedoms, fought over and exchanged under the rule of France, Switzerland and the Habsburgs, until Italy evolved into a unified nation extending from the Alps to the Mediterranean.
