Urbino.

(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, countless small individual buildings, a clearly recognizable urban plan set within old fortified stone walls, sailing vessels in the harbor, a city shield at top right corner.

A scarce plan, and found here well printed in a rich dark ink impression.
Paper remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor light typical age wear flaws unworthy of specific mention are to be expected. Some light surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the zoomable scan.

Sheet measures c. 5 7/8" H x 8 1/2 " W.

Printed area measures c. 5" H x 7 " W.
