Description

A beautifully engraved and richly decorated plan of Pisa. With a key (1-97) in lower left corner referring to the principal places of interest in the town.
Joan Blaeu published during his life three town-books of Italy: Citta del Vaticano, Rome and Napoli. By the year 1672 a fire largely destroyed the main Blaeu workshop, and much of the prepared material. However, work on the town-book continued, and in 1682 the completed work was published in Amsterdam by the heirs of Joan Blaeu. The town-book was a great success and reissued several times by different publishers in Amsterdam, as late as 1726. Pierre Mortier re-issued all the Blaeu plates in the years 1704/05 in an atlas comprising four volumes. Now with the imprint of A La Haye chez R.Alberts.
