¤ Although Komensky's map of Moravia was already known in his time, Coronelli used the obsolete map by Fabricius, with a lot of locations added by the publisher's unchained imagination. The scale is about 1:350 000.
The map is a rarity in that it gives the names of localities in several different languages. For example, the Olomouc entry says in seven lines: Olmütz A., Olomoniec Pol., Holomaucz Mor., Olomutium L., Eburum, Episc: sotto l'Arciu di Praga gia Metropoli della Moravia. The Brno entry says: Brin, Brun A., Brno B., Bruna L., Brinnum L., Dichiatata Metrop. della Moravia 1642. Thus the names of towns are given in Latin - L., B. (Bohemian) which is incorrectly listed in the legend as Bulgarian, German - A., Polish - Pol., and, Moravian - M.

The remarkable Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718), encyclopaedist, geographer, inventor and Doctor of Theology, was citizen of the Republic of Venice. He was also one of the most prominent mapmakers and publishers in Europe of his day.
