Stati di Savoia, Piemonte dedicati all’eccellentissimo Signore Ottavio Manin…

Fine example this striking map of Piemonte and Savoy, from Vincenzo Maria Coronelli’s Corso Geografico, published in Venice in 1693.
The map provides a stunning description of the topography of the area between France and Italy, naming mountains, rivers, lakes, towns, castles, etc. Includes an elegant cartouche and 2 coats of arms. One of the most interesting, detailed and beautiful map of the region of XVII Century.
Vincenzo Maria Coronelli is widely recognised as one of Italy’s most famous and greatest cartographers. He received an ecclesiastical education at the convent of the Minor Conventuals and also studied theology in Rome. However, his interests in geography and cartography were awoken early in his ecclesiastical career and never suppressed. He made very famous globes (including an impressive very large-scale pair for Louis XIV) and some of the most interesting and decorative atlases of all 17th century like Atlante Veneto, Isolario, Corso Geografico Universale, Libro dei Globi and also some pocket books about towns and islands. These important works are all finely engraved in his unique style with high quantity of toponymic and historical information. In 1680 Coronelli also founded the oldest surviving geographical society “The Argonauts Accademy”.
