Original Parchment Map of the city of Lucca dated 1640

Found in Rome, Original Parchment Map of the city of Lucca dated 1640Rome

An antique map of the Tuscan city of Lucca engraved for The 'Itinerarium Italiæ Nov-antiquæ' by Matthäus Merian the Elder and printed in 1640. The original paper from 1640 is well preserved. We have expertly mounted both maps here in Florence to protect them.

The city is depicted from a bird's eye view using extraordinarily beautiful detailed engraving which captures every detail within the ancient cities walls.

In Lucca: Detail of the magnificent tree-lined walls of Lucca; the Amphitheater, the central Piazza San Michele, the Cathedral of San Martino with the bell tower and its square and the extraordinary network of streets, convents, churches and gardens that make up the ancient city.

Matthäus Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was a Swiss engraver born in Basel who worked in Frankfurt and illustrated many publications from the late sixteenth century.

We also have a map of Pisa by Matthäus Merian the Elder available for sale. We recommend framing these pieces under glass to preserve them for another 400 years!
