Gaiazzo.

(Caiazzo- Campagnia- Italia- Italy).

Issued 1629, Padova, appresso- Francesco Bertelli, con lic. de' Sup.

Delightful antique engraved Italian city plan. A most charming map, with a splendid near folk-art primitive style. The level of detail is astounding, hundreds of small individual buildings, a clearly recognizable urban plan set within old fortified stone walls, even dozens of individual minute garden plans, a city shield at left side.

A very scarce plan, and found here well printed in a rich dark ink impression.

Sheet measures c. 6 1/8" H x 8 1/4 " W.

Printed area measures c. 4 5/8" H x 6 3/4 " W.
