The Kingdom of Naples and Southern Italy: A Hand-Colored 18th Century Homann Map

$1,175

About the Item

"Novissima & exactissimus Totius Regni Neapolis Tabula Presentis Belli Satui Accommo Data" is a hand colored map of southern Italy and the ancient Kingdom of Naples created by Johann Baptist Homann, published in Nuremberg, Germany in 1710. It depicts the Italian "boot" and the northern portions of Sicily. It includes Naples, Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast, the Isle of Capri, as well as the Adriatic coast of southern Italy. There is a striking decorative cartouche in the right upper corner that includes a knight on a flying horse, two sword wielding cherubs, an apparently royal woman and a smoldering Mt. Vesuvius in the background. A second cartouche in the right lower corner depicts two cherubs (one holding a sword) flanking a coat-of-arms, a distance scale and smoke billowing from Mt. Vesuvius in the background. There is a central horizontal fold as issued. There are occasional small faint spots but the map is otherwise in very good condition. Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724) was a mapmaker who founded a respected and prolific publishing company, which continued long after his death as Homann Heirs. Homann lived his entire life in Bavaria, particularly in Nuremberg. Initially, Johann trained to become a priest before converting to Protestantism and working as a notary. In 1702, Johann founded a publishing house that specialized in engravings. The firm flourished, becoming the leading map publisher in Germany and an important entity in the European map market. In 1715, Johann was named Imperial Geographer to the Holy Roman Empire by Charles VI and made a member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences. Most importantly for his business, his reputation and contacts gained him imperial printing privileges which protected his publications and recommended him to customers.
