Description:

Vincenzo Coronelli (August 16, 1650 – December 9, 1718) was a Franciscan monk, a Venetian cosmographer, cartographer, publisher, and encyclopedist known in particular for his atlases and globes, and who spent most of his life in Venice, where he was nominated the official cosmographer in 1685. This map (Isola e Regno di Sardegna soggetta al Re di Spagna) was published in Coronelli's Corso Geografico in 1692. Map is caracterized by a large title cartouche in the upper left corner and the Sardinia's symbol (the four blindfolde mures) in the lower right size.

Engraving Information:

This artistic reproduction of an antique map was made using the same techniques, materials and instruments used for the original. Map is created from a zinc slab that is mounted on a wooden base and printed by hand, a piece at the time, on a press with a limited production size of 20 pieces each time. Map is printed on cotton-paper panels which are glued and mounted on a cotton cloth background "a stacchi" (slightly separated from each other), in order to allow for folding and easier transport. Finally, map is water-colored by hand, making it a truly unique piece, worthy of the original vintage map.
