[p.137] Description of a splendid collection of 950 maps and views

of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries at the National Library of Malta

Albert Ganado

            It has been written that the modern historical study of cartography can be said to have started with the publication in 1889 in Stockholm of a Facsimile-Atlas to the Early History of Cartography with Reproductions of the Most Important Maps Printed in the XV and XVI Centuries. [1] Its author was Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld (1832-1901) who became famous for no less than ten successful Arctic expeditions.

Nordenskiöld made a thorough study of the geographical atlas of Claudius Ptolomaeus, or Ptolemy, a Greek scientist who flourished in the third century of our era and who spent the greater part of his life studying and working at Alexandria or in its vicinity. In fact, he made his observations on the parallel of Alexandria. Twelve centuries later, in 1410, his Geographia, was translated from Greek into Latin and several copies of the translation spread in various European countries. Some of them are still extant in public libraries.

With the invention of printing, as in most parts of the arts and sciences, to Italy belongs the honour of being the first to bring to the attention of scholars Ptolemy’s atlas of the world: it was printed in Bologna, Rome, Florence and again in Rome in the latter part of the fifteenth century, with a further eleven editions in the next century.

Although Ptolemy’s principles of geography and basic methods are still followed today, albeit with variations, his geographical ideas and his notions of the distribution of continents and seas were often quite erroneous. For instance, he gave, in his maps, too great a longitudinal extension to the Mediterranean Sea, and generally to the whole world known to the ancients. This notwithstanding, Ptolemy’s geographical data were accepted without question by the mapmakers of the fifteenth and the [p.138] first half of the sixteenth centuries. It was only in the middle of the sixteenth century that a positive change came about in the development of cartography. The break was introduced in Italy by Giacomo Gastaldi and other geographers between 1550 and 1570, by Philip Apianus (1568) in Germany, Ortelius in the Netherlands as from 1562 and above all Gerard Mercator as from 1537. [2] At this period, however, maps with new geographical knowledge were being published on separate sheets, mostly in Rome and Venice, and they were not issued in a complete and systematic work like the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of Abraham Ortelius, published in Antwerp in 1570.

Although this was the first standard atlas as we know it today, it was preceded by the Italian composite atlases, which consisted of collections of maps of the then-known world put together from stock by the top map traders in Rome and Venice and bound in volume form. These volumes had in the main the following characteristics:

(a)         the maps were usually placed in each volume in the old Ptolemaic system of precedence;
(b)        no two volumes were alike in their contents;
(c)         the majority of maps in each volume were maps printed from time to time on loose sheets, but maps published in town books and other works were sometimes included;
(d)        the smaller maps were at times inlaid with extra margins to bring them to the size of the volume;
(e)         a large proportion of the maps were Italian productions, with the atlases assembled in Rome having a preponderance of Roman maps and those assembled in Venice containing mostly Venetian maps.

One such atlas was described by Nordenskiöld in the book mentioned above. [3] Many of the maps in the atlas had been produced in Rome by Antonio Lafreri or his nephew Claudio Duchetti, [4] and the volume happened to have an engraved title-page on whose inner field was written:

[p.139] Geografia. Tavole moderne di geografia de la maggior parte del mondo di diversi autori raccolte et messe secondo l’ordine di Tolomeo con i disegni di molte citta et fortezze di diverse provintie stampate in rame con studio et diligenza in Roma, a title-page attributed to Lafreri. [5] Nordenskiöld named the volume “Lafreri’s Atlas” and the name stuck.

In 1907, Fr Ehrle published a list of maps on sale in 1572 at Lafreri’s establishment in Rome which tallied in many respects with the contents of such collections, and this strengthened further the link of Lafreri’s name with this kind of atlas. [6]

Today, however, all writers agree that the generic term “Lafreri Atlas” is misleading. [7] Not only were similar atlases assembled in Venice by Paolo Forlani, Ferdinando Bertelli and Giovanni Francesco Camocio, but recent studies of extant exemplars tend to prove that Venice preceded Rome in the production of these atlases. [8] This is not in the least surprising because it was also in Venice that the first Italian town books were compiled and published. They were produced in two parts by Paolo Forlani and Domenico Zenoi in 1567, at about the same time the first Italian composite [p.140] atlas was assembled in Venice. [9] It is not yet known whether it is the town book or the composite atlas that can claim chronological priority, but they are complementary, and the one that came later might have been inspired by the one that came before.

However, while Venice preserved for a time the monopoly of the town books and remained in the forefront of the publication of the isolari, [10] the composite atlases of all the countries of the world of Venetian origin soon died out. On the other hand, the tradition was kept up in Rome for well over a century as will shortly be seen.

It is through these composite atlases that Italian cartography of the sixteenth century can be studied and appreciated; without them, a very large proportion of Italian maps of that period would have been irretrievably lost. Indeed, although some eighty of these atlases have survived (of which some have recently been broken up), there still are maps which are known to have been published, but not a single copy of which has so far come to light. Other maps (including maps of Malta) are extant in only one or two copies.

For the purposes of this paper, it is important to follow the traces of the large number of engraved copper plates existing at Antonio Lafreri’s shop in Via Parione, Rome, when he passed away on 20 July, 1577. This Roman “tycoon” of the printing and publishing trade died childless and intestate. His estate was divided in three parts, one-third of which was assigned to Claudio Duchetti, Lafreri’s nephew, who eventually became his uncle’s [p.141] successor in the business. He also augmented the stock he had inherited from his uncle by acquiring plates from other publishers and by commissioning the engraving of new plates. He reached the peak of his activity in 1585, which was also the year of his death. It is quite likely that Duchetti assembled in volume form from his stock maps of the various parts of the world, thus following the footsteps of Lafreri and the Venetian publishers.

Although Claudio appointed in his will his brother-in-law Giacomo Gherardi as the tutor of his offspring, some of Lafreri’s plates were acquired by Paolo Graziani and Pietro de Nobili, others by Giovanni Orlandi and from him by Henricus van Schoel, a few by Nicholas van Aelst. [11]

All the varied copper plates (archaeological, religious, geographical, mythological) forming the stock of the Roman print dealers ended up, like many rivulets, in the pool formed by various members of the de Rossi family of which there were two branches working independently of each other: that founded by Giuseppe Rossi Alla Pace (in Piazza della Pace) which spanned the years 1613-1738, and that set up A Piazza Navona by Giovanni Battista de Rossi which lasted from 1610 to 1696.

The whole collection of plates was sold to the Papal Government in 1738. In April 1799 Republican France melted down 1158 plates to convert them into coins, and five years later 3702 plates were disposed of as the relative prints were considered to have no commercial value. [12] A relatively small number has survived till the present day.

It is against this background that the collection of maps forming the subject matter of this paper has to be examined. This superb collection consists in about 840 maps mostly printed, but with quite a few manuscript ones, of all the countries of the world, dating from the 1540s to 1700, originally bound in six volumes. In addition, an atlas of about 110 maps probably assembled by Giovanni Orlandi in the 1610s.

The first six volumes were listed in 1843 in the first printed catalogue of the books at our Biblioteca, compiled by subject by the librarian, Dr. [p.142] Cesare Vassallo. This is his entry: Raccolta di Piante et Alzate di Citta e di Fortezze. 6 vol. in Fol. (Alcune delle quali fatte a pennello, le altre intagliate in varj tempi e da diversi incisori. Con un indice m.s. alla fine di ogni volume. [13] They were also listed in the catalogue of books in the Italian language published by Dr. Vassallo in 1857, [14] and in the catalogue of books at the Public Library published in 1912. [15]

The National Library of Malta owes its origin to a General Chapter of the Order held in 1553, but it started developing only a century later and it was founded as a Public Library by the French Knight Fra Jean Louis Guerin de Tencin (1702-1766), who donated to the Library all his books, numbering 9,700 volumes. In 1760 the Library was endowed with the books of Cardinal Gioacchino Portocarrero, who died at Rome. There is no mention of this map collection in the eighteenth-century inventories of the Portocarrero and Tencin libraries. [16] The provenance of these six volumes is unknown. They might have been acquired by the Library some time between 1760 and 1843.

At some time, perhaps in the nineteenth century, the six volumes were bound in grey cloth. However, a few decades ago the binding of Volumes II and III was removed, backing was used on some of the maps, a good number of which had been badly attacked by bookworms, and the contents of the two volumes are now in folders. The binding of another volume (no. VI) was preserved when the maps underwent restoration a few years ago [p.143] after the writer had drawn the attention of the Librarian, Mr John Sultana, to the existence of this corpus of maps and its considerable value, and, in particular, the presence of this volume (no. VI), the jewel of the collection. The end papers of the volumes still bound in grey cloth (I, IV, V, and VI) have the same watermark, a sure indication that they were bound at the same period.

The manuscript title of Volume I, set in a richly-engraved baroque frame, reads as follows:

Piante, et
Alzate di Città,
e Fortezze
Raccolte in

The same title is repeated in Volumes II, III and V. That in Volume IV is slightly different; it says: raccolte, et unite in Roma, proving that not only were the maps collected in Rome, but that they were also put together in the same city. Volumes II and IV have the same engraved frontispiece as Volume I, designed by Francesco Santone and produced by N. Billy, vicino all’Orologgio della Chiesa nuoua, but all three were printed from different plates. It is not known whether the frontispiece was prepared for some other purpose and made use of for these volumes, or whether it was engraved specifically for this collection. The latter alternative seems unlikely, because Volumes III and V have a different frontispiece, namely, the printed page of Giacomo Lauro’s HEROICO SPLENDORE / DELLE / CITTÀ DEL MONDO / LIBRO PRIMO / Doue si uedono le piante di molte Citta Ill ri e di molte non / più state alla stampa con le loro origini et atti segnalati, et / quanto si estende il dominio di esse sino alli prese[n]ti tempi / in Roma l Anno di nostra salute 1642 / Con priuilegio del Som[m]o Pontefice, et d’altri Potent ti . [17] Volume VI has no title-page, the reason being that the volume was assembled long before the other volumes were put together.

[p.144] Lauro started working as an engraver towards the end of the sixteenth century and he died shortly before 1650. Nicold Billy, on the other hand, was an Italian engraver of the second half of the seventeenth century.

The contents of the first five volumes may be summarized in the following manner: Volume I contains 94 maps belonging mostly to the seventeenth century; plans of German and Flemish towns in the main, but including also 25 maps and plans of Brazil, which were apparently designed and engraved for the reissue by de Rossi in Rome in 1700 of the Istoria delle Guerre del Regno del Brasile written by Joao José de Santa Teresa, and originally published in 1698 without maps. [18] Apart from the printed maps, there are several manuscript plans of fortresses, painstakingly drawn and coloured, with decorative cartouches, compass roses and vignettes of war trophies.

The well-known names of Giacomo Lauro, Guglielmus Janssonius Blaeu and Vincenzo Maria Coronelli appear on a few of the printed maps; the practically unknown names of Girolamo Frezza and Otto Barentse Smient are inscribed on others. It is important to note that one of the manuscript plans was the original design for a printed plan which is also included in the atlas, probably published by Coronelli. [19]

Volume II has 147 maps, a good number of which are seventeenth-century small plans of French and German towns. However, this volume contains also a considerable number of maps of the sixteenth century, some in state 1, others reissued later with the imprints of the publishers mentioned above in connection with the passage of the Roman copper plates: Lafreri, Duchetti, Orlandi, van Schoel. As will later be seen, of particular significance are 4 maps with the imprint of Gio Domenico de Rossi and 6 with that of Gio Giacomo de Rossi. One of the maps in this volume is the map of Malta published in 1647 in Gian Francesco Abela’s history of the island. Other maps bring to light names little known, if at all, in mapmaking, as, for example, Bernardo Buontalenti, Calisto Ferrante, Paolo Giuliani, I. Honeruogt, Angiola Marcucci, Giorgio Marescotti, Michele Luigi Muzio, and Francesco Parenti.

[p.145] Volume III has no less than 214 maps, but some of them were cut out from composite plates and several others are small plans of towns in Italy and other European countries. Duchetti, Orlandi and van Schoel are again present, but in this volume there are, among others, maps by Francesco Collignon, Matteo Florimi, Giacomo Lauro, Mattioli, and Arnold van Westerhout. Showing signatures of the de Rossi family, there are one map by Gio Batta, one by Matteo Gregorio and ten by Gio Giacomo. The uncommon names include G.B. Camozzi, Petrus Miotte, Blas Pico, Gotfried de Scachijs.

Volume IV. This volume contains 129 maps. There are a few sixteenth century maps, but the volume mainly consists of seventeenth-century maps with such well-known names as Cornelis Danckerts, Jan Jansson, Matthaus Merian and Pierre Mariette. Arnold van Westerhout is present with 7 maps and no less than 50 maps are by Francesco Collignon, who, incidentally, published in Rome in 1670 a large orthographic plan of the harbour of Malta showing Valpergas projected fortifications che includeranno la noua e designata Citta Cottonera, corona ueram[ent]e reale di così stupende opere militari... Some rare maps reveal rare names, like, Castagnier, Michele Ercole, L. Garnier, G.B. Gisleni, I. Humbelot, G.W. Klenistratl, and G.B. Onorati.

Volume V. The 120 maps in this volume are a mixture of productions of both centuries. Again we come across the old familiar names of Lafreri, Duchetti, Orlandi and van Schoel, and the not-so-familiar Girolamo Bell’Armato, Paolo Forlani, Vincenzo Luchini, Girolamo Olgiato, Lorenzo de la Vaccaria, Enea Vico and Bolognino Zaltieri. Belonging to the seventeenth century, alongside maps by Girolamo Albrizzi, Wilhelm Blaeu, Coronelli and Mariette, we find 7 maps by Collignon, 12 by van Westerhout, 10 by Gio Giacomo de Rossi and 4 by Domenico, Gio Domenico and Matteo Gregorio de Rossi. The following names are apparently unrecorded: Battista Brespi, Thomas Cardanus, Placido Donia, Domenico Fontana, Melchiorre Haug, Carolo Iangolinio, Francesco Sabbatino and Daniel Widman. One particular map in this volume needs to be singled out. It is a map of Greece engraved by Nicolò Sansone, published by Nicolò Billy in Rome in 1686. Apart from the rarity of the map (it is not even listed in Zacharakis), [20] it helps to date the frontispiece [p.146] of Volumes I, II and IV. It proves that, contrary to what was recorded by Bénézit, [21] Billy was already active in the 1680s.

Volume VI. This is the crown jewel of the set. Like all the others, it is a composite atlas, but the 132 maps in this volume all belong to the sixteenth century. It is definitely a Lafreri-type atlas, assembled a quarter-of-a-century after Lafreri’s death. The earliest dated map was published in 1548 (although there is a map probably disseminated two years before) and the latest one is dated 1600. Although it contains a few Venetian maps (3 by the Bertellis, 2 by Camocio, 10 by Forlani and 7 Gastaldi maps), there is no doubt that it is a Roman atlas. The question is: by whom was it assembled? Fourteen maps have the Lafreri imprint, and Duchetti’s imprint is on another twenty-six; but both of them died before the year 1600. The reader will recall that the Lafreri-Duchetti stock of plates passed to Graziani-de Nobili-Orlandi. Graziani has 4 maps with his name, but there are 27 maps with the imprint of Pietro de Nobili, So far there is no evidence that Graziani ever produced an atlas and only a few maps are extant with his name, at times alongside that of de Nobili. On the other hand, de Nobili’s imprint Petri de Nobilibus formis is to be found on at least 44 maps (27 of which have been recorded in cartographic literature, and 17 have come to the author’s knowledge through his research on sixteenth-century Italian collections, including the present atlas). Besides, it is known that de Nobili assembled composite atlases, for which he even made use of the title-page Geografia – Tavole moderne di geografia (produced in the 1570s) inserting thereon his own imprint. [22]

One such atlas belongs to the well-known map dealer of Chicago, Kenneth Nebenzahl, and it has been described as “One of the rarest of rare books.” It contains only 72 maps of the Lafreri school, a little more than one-half of the number in the volume at the Malta National Library. The terminal date of the Nebenzahl atlas is 1592, which means that de Nobili was still flourishing in the 1590s.

[p.147] Unfortunately, his date of death is not known. As things stand at the present moment, the author feels that Volume VI of the collection should be ascribed to Pietro de Nobili. True, there is in the volume one map with Giovanni Orlandi’s imprint, but it seems to be an original map and not one that had been acquired by Orlandi from Lafreri’s inheritance. Almost invariably, the Lafreri-Duchetti maps reissued by Orlandi with his own imprint are dated 1602; there are at least 52 of them, 39 recorded in cartographic literature and another 13 which the writer has come across during his research. It seems that de Nobili died or passed out of business soon after 1600, and his place was taken by Orlandi in 1602.

Confirmation that the volume being discussed is a de Nobili atlas comes from the watermark of the sheet attached to the sheet on which the index of contents was written. It has the letter “M” under star within a shield, which the writer has almost always found associated with maps carrying de Nobili’s imprint. This means that this is the second Nobili atlas known to exist. However, the writer has examined an unrecorded sixteenth-century composite atlas at the Biblioteca Angelica in Rome, which seems to be the remnant of another de Nobili atlas. Out of the 24 maps still extant, 3 maps have de Nobili’s name, and 14 (or 15) of the other 21 are also in the present volume which is being ascribed to him.

It has been said above that this volume is an atlas of 132 maps. That is the number of maps it contained when it was assembled and when the manuscript index of the contents was compiled. However, four maps are now missing – the maps of Malta. They were removed from the atlas by someone who had easy access to the collection and sold on the local market about twenty years ago. [23]

[p.148] There are maps in this atlas which are apparently unrecorded and some of them have names which are worth mentioning: Battista da Parma, Pietro Giovanni Bompario, Bartolomeo Grassi, and Ippolito Scalza.

The last question to be answered is; who was the owner of the Nobili atlas and the hundreds of maps which were put together in Volumes I to V to make up a single collection? The most plausible answer seems to be that it was a member of the de Rossi dynasty. The branch of the family keeping shop at Piazza Navona all’insegna della stampa had two prominent members: Giovanni Battista (fl. 1640-1672) and Matteo Gregorio (1686-1696). There is a map in the collection dated after 1696, as well as the Brazil maps of 1700, and therefore this branch of the family has to be ruled out. On the other hand, those established at Piazza della Pace all’insegna di Parigi were active over a longer period: Giuseppe 1613-1639; Gio Giacomo 1649-1691; Domenico c.1691-1720; Lorenzo Filippo c.1720-1738. From these dates it would seem that the father of the collection was Domenico de Rossi. [24]

There is another precious volume at the National Library which does not seem to have formed part of the set which has just been described.

This atlas is listed in an old catalogue (Lib. Ms. 583) as Fortezze e città delineata Cum Figuris, no. 3622 (p. 112), shelfmark III. j. 8.24, as well as in the catalogue Libr. Ms. 605 (III/6 Part 2) on page 1793 with the same title and shelfmark, the Roman number ‘III’ being explained as Stanza III. [p.149] In Dr. C. Vassallo’s catalogue printed in 1843, [25] it is described as follows under Scienze ed Arti:

Piante e disegni de varie fortezze, assedj e città intagliati in varj tempi, e da diversi incisori. Fol.

In the 1873 supplement, [26] it was listed under Storia - Geografia as Piante antiche di Città. 1603. 1 in fol. It will be seen that this date is incorrect.

The volume has a modern nineteenth-century binding and the end papers are watermarked with the letters “G V.” At present, the book does not have the same contents as when it was acquired by the Library. It was still whole in 1843, because the 1843 catalogue states:

Stanno in principio di questo prezioso volume i disegni della guerra, assedio et assalti dati dall’ armata turchesca all’isola di Malta nel 1565, sotto il governo di La Valletta, dipinti nella gran sala del palazzo di Malta da Matteo Perez d’Aleccio, ed intagliati da Ant. Franc. Lucini. Bologna 1631.

The Lucini plates of the siege are no longer in the book. They were officially removed some time after 1843 and placed in a separate album. Today, together with the Lucini plates, this album contains two other maps of Malta: a siege plan of 1565 published by Lafreri (state 2) reissued by Giovanni Orlandi, and a plan of Fort St Elmo published in 1566 by Pietro Paolo Palombi and reissued by Gaspare Alberti. It seems that these two maps were removed from the book together with the Lucini engravings. [27] When the Lucini plates were still in the atlas, they were the first thirty-one pages in the book. Due to their removal, the first page is now numbered thirty-two and the book contains 90 printed maps and a manuscript map of Pantelleria, instead of the 109 (or 111) maps originally placed in it. The earliest dated map is that of Nice published by Enea Vico in 1543, but it is present in a seventeenth-century reissue; the latest, a plan of Messina Citta Di Maria Vergine by Placido Samperi, is dated 1642. The names of seventy different mapmakers, engravers, printers and publishers figure in the book. Among the sixteenth-century imprints, there are three of Lafreri, [p.150] eleven of Claudio Duchetti, one of de Nobili. Obviously, however, the maps were assembled in one volume by a publisher who was still active in 1642, the terminal date of the atlas. Although there are a few seventeenth-century maps by Giacomo Lauro, Giovanni Maggi, Giacomo Marcucci and two of the de Rossis, the compiler of the atlas was probably one of those whose maps appear in greater numbers. Matteo Florimi of Siena is present with thirteen maps, Orlandi with fourteen and van Schoel with nineteen. Florimi died in 1612 and van Schoel in 1622. That leaves Orlandi on his own as the most likely candidate.

Although some writers, including Almagià and Tooley, thought that Orlandi flourished only during the first decade of the seventeenth century, several other writers, like Paolo Bellini, Borroni Salvadori and Thieme-Becker, stated that he was active up to 1640. In this volume there happens to be a map of the battle between Spanish and French forces near Tarragona in July 1641 dedicated by Giovanni Orlandi to Gio Martinez de Quintana. This map, not recorded elsewhere, extends Orlandi’s period of activity to at least only a few months away from the terminal date of the atlas, and therefore the author feels justified on the evidence available to ascribe to Orlandi the paternity of this atlas. If so, it was probably assembled in Naples, not in Rome, as Orlandi transferred his business from Rome to Naples after 1613, where he had a printing press alla Pietà. This atlas contains a map of La Vallona (Vlora, in Albania) issued from this address as late as 25 August 1638.

It has already been stated above that the sequence of the Lafreri plates was Duchetti-de Nobili-Orlandi-van Schoel. There is no doubt that it was van Schoel who had acquired the plates from Orlandi, probably about 1613, and not the other way round. However, a study of the contents of the present atlas leads the writer to think that, when van Schoel died, the plates went back to Orlandi before they ended up in the melting-pot of the de Rossi family.

Orlandi atlases are almost as rare as de Nobili atlases. Indeed, apart from this atlas the present writer only knew of one atlas (with eighty-four maps) in a private collection in Sicily probably assembled by Orlandi, [28] although [p.151] he has seen a composite atlas of forty maps at the Biblioteca Angelica in Rome which could perhaps be ascribed to him. Of the dated maps in the latter volume, the latest one is dated 1607, [29] that is, before Orlandi’s plates passed to van Schoel, whilst the latest dated map in the former volume was issued in 1640, sixteen years after van Schoel’s death.

It has been stated above that at times maps published in town books or other works were inserted in Lafreri-type atlases. The Orlandi atlas is a typical example: it included the whole album of Lucini’s engravings of the siege. Similarly, one of the four Lafreri atlases at the Biblioteca Nazionale di Firenze contains the title-page and the fourteen maps of the album engraved in Rome in 1582 by Matteo Perez d’Aleccio.

In a recent number of The Map Collector, [30] Rodney Shirley announced the existence of a so-called “Lafreri” atlas at Hatfield House, in Hertfordshire, the home of the Cecils. He wrote: “It is only very infrequently that a new Lafreri-type atlas comes to light.” The present writer is pleased that he has been able to divulge the existence at the National Library in Valletta of two similar atlases, probably assembled by two prominent members of the Lafreri inheritance, de Nobili and Orlandi, as well as another five factice atlases assembled in Rome in the seventeenth century on more or less the same lines. [31] A splendid collection of about nine hundred and fifty maps and views some of which of great rarity, of inestimable value to the study carto-bibliography.

[p.167] Volume III

Title-page. Piante, et / Alzate delle / Città, e Forte: / Raccolte in / Roma / Tom: III. The manuscript title is inscribed in a window cut into the top centre of an engraved frontispiece of Giacomo Lauro’s town book. The book has the following title and imprint: HEROICO SPLENDORE / DELLE / CITTA DEL MONDO / LIBRO PRIMO / DI IACOMO LAVRO ROMANO / Doue si uedono le piante di molte Citta Ill ri e di molte non / più state alla stampa con le loro origini et atti segnalati, et / quanto si estende il dominio di esse sino alli prese[n]ti tempi / in Roma l’ Anno di nostra salute 1642 / Con priuilegio del so[m]mo Pontefice, et d’altri Potent. ti / Con licenza de Superiori


Some decades ago, the volume was officially vandalized. The binding was removed, perhaps because it had heen attacked by bookworms. Some of the smaller maps were cut up singly or in pairs from the sheets on which they were originally printed, the numbering of the folios in the volume was almost completely done away with, at times the title, or the imprint, or the image itself, was badly cropped, and, to crown it all, several maps were laid down haphazardly, even in multiples, without any order or sequence.

The numbers in brackets correspond to the numbers given in the Index, but only in so far as it was possible to establish the identity of each map. The maps numbered 203 to 212 by the writer have not been found or properly identified in the Index.

Volume VI

The volume has no title-page. Only very few Lafreri-type atlases are extant with an engraved frontispiece. All the maps were recently backed with thin Japanese tissue paper and at the present moment they are all separate.


(The first numbers are those given by the writer; those in brackets are the numbers of the folios in the atlas. There is no map numbered 85, neither in the volume nor in the index. Four maps of Malta and one of Gallipoli are wanting.)

[4] Nordenskiöld (118) incorrectly wrote that Duchetti (or Duchet) was Lafreri’s uncle. On at least six engravings, Duchetti acknowledged that he was Lafreri’s nephew: quondam Antonii Lafreri nepos.

[5] Although most writers have ascribed this title-page to Antonio Lafreri, Marcel Destombes attributed this beau frontispiece to Stéphane Du Pérac and he maintained that it was published without any doubt in 1577, perhaps by Duchetti (M. Destombes, “Les cartes de Lafréri et assimilées (1532-1586) du Département des Estampes de la Bibliothèque Nationale.” in Nouvelles de l’Estampe, Paris, 1970, 2-3. The circumstances that followed Lafreri’s demise and the recovery from the Tiber of the body of a certain Geronimo, an engraver employed in his workshop, have been recently published (G.L. Masetti Zannini, “Rivalità e lavoro di incisori nelle botteghe Lafréry-Duchet e De La Vacherie,” in Les fondations nationales dans la Rome Pontificale, Rome 1981, 547-566). In those circumstances, and with the absence of Duchetti from Rome until October 1577, it was rather difficult for Duchetti to attend to the preparation and publication of the title-page during that particular year. It could very well have been published by Lafreri before his death in July 1577.

[10] Isolari are books of islands that came into being in the fifteenth century in order to provide sailing directions between mainland harbours and the numerous islands of the Mediterranean and its adjacent seas. The oldest one, by Cristoforo Buondelmonti, goes back to 1420. The first printed seaman’s manual of this kind was a description of the Greek archipelago by Bartolomeo dalli Sonetti; it was published in 1485, shortly after the invention of printing. His work was expanded in 1528 by Benedetto Bordone. At about the same period, a number of manuscript versions of Kitab-i-Bahriye (Book on Navigation) were being produced by Piri Reis, a renowned Turkish corsair. Other manuscript isolari were compiled by Henricus Martellus (fl. 1480-96), Alonso de Santa Cruz (1560) and Antonio Millo (fl. 1557-90). Printed isolari were published by Leandro Alberti and Girolamo Porro in the sixteenth century, and Vincenzo Maria Coronelli in the seventeenth.

The National Library has some old catalogues compiled before 1800. Two of them give the progressive number of each book in the Library at the time they were compiled. One catalogue (Libr. Ms. 604) gives numbers 1-14250. The six volumes have progressive number 15963 and they are listed in catalogue Libr. Ms. 606. It is not known when these catalogues were compiled and which system was followed; therefore, no conclusions can be drawn from this source.

[17] Even Giacomo Laura’s plates of the book Antiquae Urbis Splendor, published in 1612, passed to the de Rossi family. They were reissued in Rome by de Rossi in 1699 under a different title: Romanae magnitudinis Monumenta...restituta et aucta, with the addition of fifteen new plates (Rappaport’s Catalogue 181, Rome, no. 164).

[23] From facts known to the author, he has been able to ascertain that the missing maps were almost certainly the following:
(a) Vltimo disegno delli forti di Malta uenuto nuouamente ... Ant. Lafrerj Romae formis 1565 de mese Augusti. 355 x 510 mm. State 2.
(b) A portrait of Grand Master La Valette and two plans printed on one sheet: Vera effigie ... Li Porti di Malta, di nouo ristaurati ... da tale rabia. D. Zenoi; and VALETTA NOVA CITTA DI MALTA. The watermark is the letter “M” under star in shield.
(c) Nuouo et ultimo disegno di Malta hauuto da li auisi delli xiiij et xix di Settembre...Se uendeno a S. to Agostino a linsegna della Palomba. In Roma. 400 x 510 mm. State 2.

[24] When this paper was being prepared, an Importante collection de cartes de l’Ecole de Lafreri, XVI e siècle was sold at Arcoles in Paris on 12 October 1992. The maps were offered as individual items, one hundred and one in all, of which roughly one-half were published in the sixteenth century, and the other half in the seventeenth. Of the dated maps, the earliest was a map of Algiers published in 1541 by Antonio Salamanca and the latest was a plan of Orbetello by Andrea Salmincio dated 1646. This is only five years beyond Giovanni Orlandi’s known period of activity, as will later be seen, and the collection contains about thirty Lafreri maps, most of which have the imprint of Orlandi. What confuses the issue is that the compiler of the catalogue ascribed two undated maps (Canal Monferrato and Mantova) to c. 1670 and another one (Turin) to c. 1700. These dates (if correct) would place the collection within the period of activity of the de Rossis; there is, however, only one map signed by a de Rossi (Gio. Domenico), dated 1643.

[27] The two maps have the same folds and stains as the Lucini engravings, caused when they were bound together in the book from which they were removed.

[28] Unfortunately, the atlas was broken up a few years ago and the maps were sold individually. It contained five maps of Malta: two Palombi maps, two Lafreri maps reissued by Orlandi and an anonymous plan of Valletta of the early seventeenth century. They are now in the writer’s collection.

[29] It is a map of Tivoli, engraved by Antonio Del Re and published by Giacomo Lauro.
