Description:

Nice example of Gastaldi's modern map of Sicily and Sardinia.

Gastaldi's mapping of Sicily is of special note, as the map would unquestionably include the same information as contained in Gastaldi's Descrittione della Sicilia con le sue Isole ..., first issued in 1545, which was Gastaldi's second earliest map.

Giacomo Gastaldi is considered as the foremost Italian cartographer of the 16th century along with Paolo Forlani. From Piedmont, Gastaldi established his reputation in Venice and was cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. Gastaldi enjoyed a productive relationship with Giovanni Ramusio, Secretary of the Venice Senate, who used Gastaldi's maps for his Navigationi et Viaggi. This map is from Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy, Ptolemeo. La Geografia..., begun as early as 1542 and published in Venice in 1548.
