Italia antiqua, cum itineribus antiquis, cum insulis Sicilia, Sardinia & Corsica
Description:
Nicolas Sanson, one of the earliest of the great French cartographers, produced in addition to modern (contemporary) maps, a series of maps of the "ancient world," including this one of Italy under the Romans.
