Finely detailed map of Georgia, Armenia and the region between the Black and Caspian Seas, including parts of modern day Turkey and Azerbaijan.
The map is based upon an earlier map by Guillaume De L'Isle and shows towns, early roads, rivers, mountains, lakes and other fine details.
One of the most detailed maps of the region published in the mid-18th Century.
Paolo Santini (1729-1793) was an Venetian engraver known especially for his religious prints and fine cartographic engravings. He published in Venice and may have a been a member of the clergy. In his maps, he largely adopted and adapted the work of his French counterparts, especially the brothers de Vaugondy.
