1762 – R. Zannoni – Carte Generale de la Pologne
Title: “Carte Generale de la Pologne avec tous les Etats qui en dependent…”
This is a beautiful example of Rizzi-Zannoni’s 1762 decorative map of the Poland and its tributaries. It covers from Denmark and Germany eastward to Russia, northwards to Livonia and south to Hungary, including Lithuania, Prussia, Greater Poland, Lesser Poland, and parts of Russia, Germany, Hungary and Bohemia. This map illustrates Poland in the declining years of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, prior to the 1772 First Partition of the Commonwealth. A baroque style decorative title cartouche depicting the Polish eagle crest appears in the upper right quadrant. This map was drawn by Rizzi-Zannoni and included as plate no. 19 in the first edition of Jean Lattre’s 1762 issue of the Atlas Moderne.
Very good condition, strong print and paper, centerfold as issued. Paper with original watermark.
This is a genuine antique map published in 1762 and not a modern copy or reprint!
