Shows the area around Lake Superior, whose coastline had been charted accurately, but the land to the north is still unexplored. Incongruously, there is an inset map of Southern Florida and the Bahamas, occupying the top right hand quarter.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.

Copper engraving. Original colour. Fine condition, good margins. Size: 42 x 33 cm. (16 x 13 inches)
