$0.00Langenes--BarentAntique-map-of-the-Gulf-of-Venice-and-Veneto--ItalySOLD <br></br> Attractive antique map of a portion of the Veneto region of Italy including most of the Gulf of Venice and Venetian lagoon from south of Chioggia ( Cioza ) extending northward past Venice ( Venetia ). The title of the map 'Patavinum', ca. 1600 reflects the fact that it is more or less centered on Padua, called Patavium by the Romans. Named features include towns and islands of Padua, Murano, Torcello, Porto de Sant Erasmo , Porto de Malamocco, Porto de San Nicolò al Lido, Cavarzere, Piove di Sacco, and Monselice. <br></br> Map carries the signature of Dutch engraver and globe maker Peter Kaerius (1571-1646) at lower right corner. French text on verso. Probably from one of three editions of the French version of the 'Thresor de Chartes Contenant les Tableaux de Tous le Pays du Monde' published in the early 17th century (1600, 1602, and 1609) (Source: http://www.septentrionalium.com/Book2_entry1.pdf).
