Giocondo Cassini, Piante e vedute prospettiche di Venezia 72
Apparently the second edition with the imprint of Lodovico Furlanetto. This plan was the first of Venice based on an accurate field survey, with its size allowing for considerable detail, and served as the prototype for all plans of Venice almost to the end of the century.
