Additional Details

As with the preceding lot, this map is from Marchetti's pirated Italian edition of Il Theatro del Mondo. That this is a later state of the map is based on the breakage of the title in the cartouche and the lack of the word "Tartaria" below the bottom neat line. Burden 128 [citing examples of states, but not citing this state].
