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

An antique map of the Tuscan city of Pisa 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 the map here in Florence to protect it.

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 Pisa: Detail of Piazza del Duomo with the Leaning Tower, the Arsenale built where the Arno leaves the city and the large vegetable garden areas that surround the city's medieval walls. This ancient print of Pisa includes a legend and the coat of arms of the maritime 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 Lucca by Matthäus Merian the Elder and printed in 1640 available for sale. We recommend framing these pieces under glass to preserve them for another 400 years.
