Found in Rome, Original Parchment Maps of the cities of Lucca & Pisa printed 1640Rome

A pair of antique maps of the Tuscan cities of Pisa and 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 cities are 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.

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 recommend framing these pieces under glass to preserve them for another 400 years.
