This is a very nice double-page map showing all of Italy, including Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica plus the surrounding parts of France and the Balkans, and a portion of North Africa. plenty of detail is offered as to topography, rivers, lakes, towns, cities, etc. It is based on the geography of Delisle. The title cartouche alluding to the Catholic Church. From Elwe's monumental 'Atlas'.
