[Engraving]. [Topography]. [Genoa]. Profile... - Lot 81 - Chayette & Cheval
[Engraving]. [Topography]. [Genoa]. Profile of the city and harbor of Genoa, capital of the republic of the same name. H. Picart fec[it]. A Paris chez Louis Boissevin, [ca. 1650]. One engraved copperplate view, ca. 28.5 x 72 cm. (copperplate); margins and tab included 38 x 89.5 cm. (creases not severe). Very rare engraved panoramic view of Genoa. It is part of the extremely rare atlas published in Paris by Jean Boisseau between 1642 and 1648, the "Theatre des citez". This copy bears the address of the merchant Louis Boissevin. When Boisseau ceased his activity, around 1648, Louis Boissevin recovered a part of his collection which he continued to exploit. Includes a legend in the margin below the engraving, identifying 25 places, not reported by Pastoureau in the Boisseau edition. Old handwritten title on spine; tab in left margin and trace of central tab on spine. (Pastoureau, Les atlas français, Boisseau I, no. 33, at Boisseau's address).
