Description

Finely and crisply engraved map of Western Prussia, now part of Poland on the Baltic Sea, including the Bay of Dantzig.
With ornamental title cartouche and noteworthy topographical detail.
The map was prepared by the Venetian cartographer and publisher François (Père) Santini and first published in Santini's "Atlas Universel dresse sur les meuilleures cartes modernes 1776."
Santini collaborated with Janvier. Santini gives credit to Homann Heirs in the cartouche. The atlas is effectively an Italian copy of the Robert de Vaugondy "Atlas Universel".
In 1784 Santini sold the plates to M. Remondini, whose name appears on this particular example - indicating that this is the second state of the map.
