    BERLINGHIERI, Francesco di Nicolo. Tabula tertia de Europa [France and Belgium]. [Florence: Niclaus Laurentii, Almanus, 1482 or slightly later]. Folding engraved map, sheet size 412 x 410mm. (repaired along verso of fold, slight soiling at upper margin).

    Although not published until mid-1482, the maps in Berlinghieri's Geographia, were perhaps printed as early as 1479. Remainder sheets were bound up and reissued at the beginning of the 16th century. Campbell 152; Hain 2825.
