Decorative large format map of Italy, hand colored by Kingdoms.
Includes Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica. Includes large decorative cartouche. The map is derived from a copper plate previously used by Guillaume De L'Isle and Phillipe Buache, two of the most important French map makers of the 18th Century.
Jean-Claude Dezauche (fl. 1780-1838) was a French map publisher. He edited and reissued the maps of Guilluame De L’Isle and Philippe Buache, two of the most skilled mapmakers of the eighteenth century. He acquired the plates of these two men’s work in 1780 from Buache’s heir, Jean Nicholas Buache. Dezauche worked in the Depot de la Marine, as had the elder Buache.
