Italiae Antique Item Insularum Siciliae, Sardiniae, Corsicae, Typus et Nova Delineatio, aeri insculpta per Matthaeum Seutter S. Caes. Et Reg. Cathol. Majest. Geographum Augustae Vindelic.

By: Matthias Seutter

Date: 1750 (Published) Augsburg

Dimensions: 19 x 22 inches (48.3 cm x 55.9 cm)

This is a fine print reproduction of a marvelous map of Italy by Matthias Seutter. This bold map shows the entire boot, the major islands and includes some regions of Europe in close proximity such as France, Switzerland, German, and the entire Adriatic Coast. This map reflects Seutter’s interest in antiquity and in the preservation of knowledge. Much of the lower left quadrant contains lists of ancient place names both at sea and on land, all numbered to match the places on the map.

Just below the lovely title cartouche in the upper right quadrant he lists authors of antiquity, including such names as Caesar, Cicero, Herodotus, Pliny, Strabo, etc. The lower right quadrant is dedicated to a listing of ancient Sicilian place names which, according to Seutter, are difficult to locate with precision. The list includes names of cities, elevated regions, conquered regions, mountains, rivers, pools, peoples and places.
