Fantastic Italian chart showing the relative heights of the world's mountains in an attractive decorative fashion. 

The map divides the mountains according to the continents, with Asia and the Americas having the highest peaks. The highest peak in the Americas is vastly overestimated in height, with an altitude of about 7800 meters. The heights of settlements in the Americas and Europe are also depicted. Volcanoes are shown.

Above the map are depictions of some of the notable mountains and places of high elevation, including Etna and the Great St. Bernard Hospice.

This map was published by Francesco Marmocchi in Florence in 1838.
