This is a magnificent museum quality antique hand-coloured map of Italy, dating from 1814.
This historic and very rare map was drawn and engraved by R. Scott for Thomsons, New General Atlas, Edinburgh.
The map is very detailed and the various colours - yellow, grey and green - beautifully highlight the different natural and political divisions of Italy as it was before the Italian Unification which was completed in 1870.
The top right corner has a further small map of the Island of Elba which is accentuated in red.
It is signed 'R. Scott Sculpt.' in the bottom right corner and is numbered '26'.
This map is very clean and is set in a beautiful ebonised and gilded frame.
