SKU: Vignola, Giacomo Cantelli da $395.00
One reinforced fold through center. Mild toning with minor foxing and wear to edges. Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 '' 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver active in 17th century Modena. Cantelli da Vignola is best known for pioneering the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. Vignola based his maps not just on earlier maps, but also upon the accounts prepared by travelers and merchants of journeys to foreign lands. Despite an impressive corpus of work, little is known of Vignola and his life.
