Important map of Spain & Portugal, which is super-imposed over over a portion of Nicolosi's map of South America, showing the Atlantic Coast from Cabo San Sebastian and the Parayba River to Buenos Aires and the Rio de la Plata. The map comes from 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. This sheet is superimposed over a portion of Scandinavia from the main four sheet map, but is a fine stand alone example of Nicolosi's work. 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.
