Catalogue Note

A very good copy of Santini’s world atlas reprinted by Remondini. Although Italian and published in Venice, all the maps are based on the best cartographers of the mid-eighteenth century. Santini was a latter-day Ortelius, selecting the best work of his continental contemporaries and having it re-engraved. In 1784 Santini sold copper plates to Remondini, whose name appears on the maps.
