Description:
Porcacchi's two world maps were first published in 1572 in L'Isole Piu Famose Del Mondo. The publication was a huge success and reprints appear from Venice in 1576, 1590, 1604, 1605, 1620, 1683 and as late as 1713, by which time the plates were completely worn down. This nautical world maps covers most of the known world, but extends only a bit further than India in the east and Central America in the west. [WLD3340]
