Description

Nice example of Rizzi Zannoni's fine map of the Gulf of Naples and Vicinity , engraved by Giuseppe Guerra and published in Naples in 1794.

The map is centered on the Bay of Naples and extends south to Positano and the Amalfi Coast, and Capri, east to Mt. Vesuvius, west to Ischia and Pozolli.

The map is a marvelous blend of engraving artistry and topographical detail, capturing the rugged topography region around Naples. 

The cartouche includes an elaborate scene including Mount Vesuvius, with a scene paying tribute to its earlier history.
