P.Vincenzo Coronelli 290 x 230 mmD1 / M95 / I67Chipping and foxing in margin otherwise very nice condition. Good impression

Gore embeded in text by Coronelli. A Gore was a map that was engraved to be adheared onto a sphere to make a globe. Globe making was expensive for both the producer and buyer and so many map makers such as Coronelli would produce versions of their gores that could be bound into an atlas or text. In this example Coronelli has had the text seperately impressed onto the sheet that explains the region.
