Southeastern sheet of Nicolosi's rare 4 sheet map of South America.
This map of South America appeared in Nicolosi's landmark atlas, a state sponsored work published in response to the work of Sanson and others outside of Italy. Nicolosi's unusual 4 sheet continental maps are unique in their presentation and style. The maps were the result of meticulous compilations by Nicolosi.
Nicolosi's Dell' Hercole e studio geografico is one of the most important Italian Atlases of the 17th Century and incorporates Nicolosi's fine work. Nicolosi maps rarely appear on the market. An essential collector's map of the region.
