DESCRIPTION: Map of the southern boot of Italy divided into provinces. Coverage of this antique hand-colored map includes islands of both the Tyrhennian Sea and Adriatic Sea including Capri, Procida, Ischia, Naples ( Napoli ), Stromboli, Lipari, Basiluzzo, the Tremiti Islands and the northern tip of Sicily including Milazzo and the Strait of Messina. Two decorative cartouches give life to the map, one includes a sea serpent, flying horses and numerous putti fencing with epee.

Drawn by famous German cartographer Johann Homann ca. 1720, the map was published later by the firm Homann Heirs. Homann Heirs (also "Homannianis Heredibus" or "Homann Erben" or "Heritiers de Homann") was a company established after the death of Homann to carry on the publishing business of the firm he started in the early 1700's. The designation "Homann Heirs" appears on maps published by that successor firm from about 1730 to 1848.
