Description

Rare plan of Ostia, the harbor of Rome, as it appeared during the Roman Empire.

Fabulously detailed and elegantly engraved plan by Antonio Lafreri, one of the most important Italian Mapmakers of the 16th Century and the mapmaker for whom the Lafreri school is named, baed upon his having engraved title pages for composite atlases then being compiled and sold in Italy, the precursor to the first modern atlas.
