About this Item: Venice: Paulo Forlani, Veronese, 1564, 1564. A beautiful Lafreri school map of northern Europe. Lafreri, arguably Italy's most influential and successful commissioner and publisher of maps, was in fact a Frenchman from Burgundy, born Antoine du Pérac Lefréry of Besançon, who settled in Rome in 1540 and in 1544 established his business as an engraver and print seller in the Via del Perione. From 1553 onwards becoming the leading dealer in engravings in Rome. Lafreri was primarily a dealer and publisher, rather than an artisan in his own right. He carried in stock the prints made not only by his own establishment, but by others, and his own name appears comparatively seldom in the atlases attributed to him. The two leading cartographic figures in the Lafreri school were undoubtedly Giacomo Gastaldi (ca.1500-1566), arguably the greatest cartographer of the period, and Paolo Forlani (fl. 1560-1571), the leading engraver/mapmaker of the day, with a great artistic sensibility, both of whom worked in Venice, and who contributed to this creation of this superb and detailed map. Gastaldi was undoubtedly the greatest master of Venetian cartography. Having been established in the city for two decades, by the late 1550s Gastaldi was devising the large-scale monumental masterpieces that would confirm his legacy: his colossal maps of Asia, Europe and Italy. "Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic, then a powerhouse of commerce and trade. He sought the most up to date geographical information available, and became one of the greatest cartographers of the sixteenth century" (Burden). Giacomo Gastaldi was, and styled himself, 'Piemontese', and this epithet appears often after his name. Born at the end of the fifteenth or the beginning of the sixteenth century, he does not appear in any records until 1539, when the Venetian Senate granted him a privilege for the printing of a perpetual calendar. His first dated map appeared in 1544, by which time he had become an accomplished engineer and cartographer. Karrow has argued that Gastaldi's early contact with the celebrated geographical editor, Giovanni Battista Ramusio, and his involvement with the latter's work, "Navigationi et Viaggi", prompted him to take to cartography as a full-time occupation. In any case Gastaldi was helped by Ramusio's connections with the Senate, to which he was secretary, and the favourable attitude towards geography and geographers in Venice at the time. Forlani was perhaps the most prolific producer of maps in the mid-16th century, and largely responsible for diffusing advanced geographical information to other parts of Europe. He was responsible for some of the most beautiful and visually appealing maps of his time, following in the footsteps of his great colleague Giacomo Gastaldi, and was a Venetian engraver and publisher of many significant maps and charts in the period of the Renaissance. It was in Italy, and particularly in Venice, that the map trade, which was to influence profoundly the course of cartographic history, was most highly developed during the first half of the 16th century. Venice was the most active port in the world, and successful trading expeditions necessitated accurate maps. Venetian ships made regular trading voyages to the Levant and into the Black Sea, to the ports of Spain and Portugal, and along the coasts of Western Europe. In the 15th century the city had already become a clearing-house for geographical information, and the development of cartography in the city was further impelled by the accomplishment of Venetian printers and engravers. This beautiful map was engraved by Ferrando Bertelli (fl. 1556-1572), one of the most prolific of Venetian map publishers and engravers, who also sold composite atlases and worked at various times with other great names in Venetian cartography - Giovanni Francesco Camocio and Domenico Zenoi.

About this Item: Venice: Giovanni Francesco Camocio, 1560., 1560. Single sheet, float mounted and framed (sheet size: 12 x 17 1/8 inches; 9 4/8 x 14 2/8 inches to the neat line, full margins showing the plate mark). Fine engraved map of the Atlantic Ocean by Paolo Forlani, decorated with a fine central compass rose and numerous rhumb lines. First edition, first issue with the imprint dated "M.D.L.X". A very important map of the Atlantic Ocean, showing the coastlines of the Americas from Labrador to Brazil, western Europe and western Africa, north from the Tropic of Capricorn. It is derived from Nicolas de Nicolai's map which he published in his French translation of Pedro de Medina's 'Arte de Navegar' in 1554. Nicolas de Nicolai had travelled extensively in the service of the French King, "usually as a spy" (Burden). His map shows clearly his knowledge of the Cartier's voyages up the St. Lawrence River. Camocio published a number of Forlani's most important and celebrated maps. Following in the footsteps of his great colleague Giacomo Gastaldi, Paolo Forlani was a Venetian engraver and publisher of many significant maps and charts in the period of the Renaissance. It was in Italy, and particularly in Venice, that the map trade, which was to influence profoundly the course of cartographic history, was most highly developed during the first half of the 16th century. Venice was the most active port in the world, and successful trading expeditions necessitated accurate maps.

About this Item: [Venice]: Paulo di Forlani da Verona, [1562]., 1562. Al Molto Mag.co Sig.or Gio. Pietro Contarini del Cl.mo Sig.or Bernardo Sig.or et patron mio sempre oss.mo Le molte et infinite cortesie usatime da. V.M. mi astrin-gono a pensare continuarmente, con qual uia possa dimostrarle un picciol segno della infinita obligatione, che ho uerso V.M. per la qual cosa, hauendo io questi di addietro intagliata l'America, con un gran parte della Florida, da tutti com-munanmente detto il Mondo nuouo, ho uo;uto farla andar fuori soto l'honorato nome di V.M. Di V.M. prontissimo Seruitore Paulo di Forland da Veron. LA. DESCRITTIONE. DI. TVTTO. IL. PERV. Single sheet, float-mounted and framed (21 x 15 inches; 20 1/8 x 14 4/8 inches to the neat line, full margins showing the plate mark). EXCEPTIONALLY FINE AND DETAILED ENGRAVED MAP OF SOUTH AMERICA, showing the whole of Florida in the northwest, some of the Gulf of Mexico, some of Central America, Bermuda and the West Indies, and all the way south to Terra del Fuego, the ocean decorated with a compass rose lower left, the title and dedication within a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche upper right THE FIRST LARGE-SCALE DELINEATION OF SOUTH AMERICA TO APPEAR IN PRINT The two leading cartographic figures in the Lafreri school were undoubtedly Giacomo Gastaldi (ca.1500-1566), arguably the greatest cartographer of the period, and Paolo Forlani (fl. 1560-1571), the leading engraver/mapmaker of the day, with a great artistic sensibility, both of whom worked in Venice. Forlani, was responsible for some of the most beautiful and visually appealing maps of his time, the most important and impressive of which is undoubtedly his "La descrittione di tutto il Perv", the first large-scale delineation of South America to appear in print and the only Lafreri school map of South America. A landmark in the mapping of South America, this is the largest and most detailed delineation of that continent published to date, the map also includes most of the West Indies and the southern extremity of Florida, a large Tierra del Fuego, and all the Caribbean islands. Unfortunately, with the rise of Antwerp as a major cartographical centre, this map did not have the long-term influence it deserves, although it is a standard feature of Italian atlases of the period. For the geographical information, Forlani drew in large part on the world map published in 1561 by his eminent colleague Giacomo Gastaldi, the most accomplished cartographer of sixteenth-century Italy. Following in the footsteps of his great colleague Giacomo Gastaldi, Paolo Forlani was a Venetian engraver and publisher of many significant maps and charts in the period of the Renaissance. It was in Italy, and particularly in Venice, that the map trade, which was to influence profoundly the course of cartographic history, was most highly developed during the first half of the 16th century. Venice was the most active port in the world, and successful trading expeditions necessitated accurate maps. Venetian ships made regular trading voyages to the Levant and into the Black Sea, to the ports of Spain and Portugal, and along the coasts of Western Europe. In the 15th century the city had already become a clearing-house for geographical information, and the development of cartography in the city was further impelled by the accomplishment of Venetian printers and engravers. Forlani was perhaps the most prolific producer of maps in the mid-16th century, and largely responsible for diffusing advanced geographical information to other parts of Europe. He was much-sought after as an engraver and mapmaker, particularly as he was adept at the difficult art of engraving lettering. Consequently, he was employed by four of the leading publishers of the period to prepare maps for them: Giovanni Francesco Camocio, Ferrando Bertelli and Bolognini Zaltieri from Venice, as well as Claudio Duchetti from Rome. This map is a rare example of Forlani's original work, and it had a seminal influence on subsequent cartography of the western hemis. Seller Inventory # 72map297
