"Urbis Romae veteris ac Modernae Accurata Delineatioé"

Copper etching, superb original hand coloring. Published by Johann Baptist Homann. Nuremberg, ca. 1730

One tear parallel and at a slight angle to centerfold at bottom of map, reaching 3" into image, has been expertly restored. Left margin is narrow. Otherwise extra fine condition with masterful original hand coloring.

This map focuses on Rome being the center of one of the major sources of our Western culture as well as of Christianity. Two allegorical cartouches show, upper left: The Pope and Justitia, the Goddess of justice. On the upper right: The Papal tiara (crown) and the coat of arms of the Vatican district held by cherubs. On the right an inset with a brief history of Rome (in German language). Bottom right an inset with the coats of arms of the 14 city district of Rome. Next to it to the left: an inset map with the seven classical hills upon which Rome was built. To its left a mileage cartouche. Along left side an inset with the names and principal churches and buildings within the 14 city districts.

The bird eye's view is done in relief style. The city blocks are not just plain squares but each of the prominent buildings are shown as architecturally individuals.

A very decorative city map of Rome, large, impressive, highly attractive and meaningful to all of us of Western Culture.
Some of the major monuments are underlined in red.

48 x 58 cm (ca. 19 x 22.8")
