Details
ANONYMOUS. Venetia. [Venice]: Francesco Valegio and Catarino Doino, n.d.

Engraved bird's-eye view of Venice on a single Royal sheet, 405 x 558mm (engraving 392 x 534mm). Includes the greater part of the Lido and the islands of the Lagoon, and key with inset views of St Mark's Square and the Rialto by Antonio da Ponte. (Unobtrusive printing flaw, some light discolouration and staining.)

VERY RARE, only one other copy recorded (at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London). The archetype for the present copy was Giovanni Franco's Venetia, Venice: 1597, This being the first version of the fifth copy, of the Franco archetype, the so-called 'The Forlani copy of Master Ica's plan' (see also lots 1084 and 1085). Of the collaboration between Valegio and Doino, there is one print dated 1611, but Doino was not as productive as Valegio, and their relationship was certainly over by the 1630's. Schultz 60.
