Il Circulo d’AUSTRIA e BAVIERA
Attractive map of Bavaria and Austria, reaching to the Gulf of Venice, in the south, with pictorial cartouche at top left with title on stone tablet amidst a rural landscape with deer, river and a waterfall. Antonio Zatta was one of the leading cartographers and publishers of the time, and his Atlante Novissimo was one of the most beautifully produced of 18th century atlases. He drew on the work of other cartographers- such as Captain Cook, for his maps of New Zealand and Australia, Robert de Vaugondy, Bellin, and developed his own distinctive elegant style.
