Auction 458 / Lot n° 1

[ASTRONOMI DI BRERA] - La pianta della città di Milano. Milan: Amministrazione municipale, 1814. A very good copy of this renown map of Milan. It is almost identical to the one produced by the Brera astronomers in 1807 which is undated and titled "Pianta di Milano. Capitale del Regno d'Italia". The small differences are in some of the street numberings and few street names. (705 x 800mm). The map is formed by 4 leaves and it's very detailed. The first leaf on the top left margin (with Piazza delle Armi in the center) is here present in double-copy, one with a minor marginal tear without loss and the other in perfect conditions (some light wear at margins but overall a very good copy).
