Rare and finely engraved map of the Duchy of Savoy, published in Venice by the important Lafreri School mapmaker Paolo Forlani, and Ferrando Bertelli.
The map was long believed to be the earliest modern map of the Duchy of Savoy, until the discovery (in 1903) of a 2 sheet map by Gilles Boileau de Bouillon ( Nova et exactissima Sabaudie Ducat Descriptio), published in 1556, which was copied by Forlani.
