Description

Fine map of Slovenia, published in Venice by Paolo Santini.

The map is dissected by the Danube River and shows the region south and west of the Danube, extending south to Bonsia and part of Serbia but with greatest focus on the region north on the Kingdom of Slovenia and the Duchy of Syrmia.

Unlike many of the maps in Santini's atlas, this regional map of Italy is not drawn from De Vaugondy and is based upon Italian sources.

One of the most detailed maps of the region published in the mid-18th Century.
