A detailed map of northern Italy with parts Croatia and Slovenia. This map was issued in Wolfgang's "Atlas Minor" which is a compilation of maps originally issued by Blaeu, de Wit, Visscher and others.

T his is apparently a very rare early proof state. There are at least four states of the map, this early state, with the coats of arms unfinished and no shading around the cherubs at the top, a second early state with shading around the cherubs, but no coats of arms, a third state with the coats of arms completed. A fourth state was issued by Covens & Mortier.
