Book Description Antionio Zatta, Venice, 1778. Very good, early outline color with small decorative cartouche. SLight extra crease right margin not causing This is a very nice (and uncommon) map of Newfoundland as the central focus, with moderate coastal (with small islands known at time) and little inland detail, as would be expected for the times. The date is from the map plate, but this was published in 'Atlante Novissimo", which came out c. 1779. Zatta was a major Italian cartographer of the time, and his works are increasingly popular with collectors. This scarce copper-plate engraved map has very wide margins, and the image measures 11.5x16 inches. Seller Inventory # 2710
