Atlante novissimo, illustrato ed accresciuto sulle osservazioni, e scoperte fatte dai più celebri e più recenti geografi, che ora per la prima volta si produce. Venice: Antonio Zatta, 1775 (1779)-1785


4 volumes, folio (378 x 253mm.), engraved title-page, double-page engraved frontispiece, engraved headpieces and initials, 46+52+54+62 (of 63) double-page engraved plates and maps with hand-colouring, volume 1 with a manuscript index loosely inserted (somewhat frayed), early nineteenth-century calf-backed marbled boards, lacking one plate in vol.4 (Il Paese de' Selvaggi Outauacesi), occasional light staining, a few small wormholes, extremities slightly rubbed


A comprehensive world atlas, with three volumes covering Europe (including Russia) and the fourth volume the rest of the world.
