This is an authentic antique map of Ancient Rome by Henri Abraham Chatelain. The map was published in 1719 out of Amsterdam as part of Chatelains 7 volume Atlas Historique.
Derrived from earlier works by Braun & Hogenberg and Jodocus Hondius, this attractive copper plate engraving shows a bird’s eye view of Ancient Rome with an eastern orientation. Within the fortified city, hundreds of buildings, churches, fountains, bridges, roads, and other place names are labeled or noted with a number. At lower right, an extensive key lists the location of every landmark within the map.
Condition: Map is in A condition, with wide margins and lovely hand coloring.
