Description:

Rare 2-sheet map showing the course of the Danube River from the Alps to the Black Sea by Nolin and Coronelli, two of the most important map makers of the late 17th and early 18th Centuries.

In the West, the map covers the region from the upper Adriatic and Gulf of Venice in the south, to the headwaters of the Danube in Bavaria.  In the east, the map extends to Ukraine, Romania, Moldova and Bulgaria, centered on the course of the Danube.

Includes and elaborate decorative cartouche.

Vincenzo Maria Coronelli is perhaps the greatest mapmaker of his time.  Recruited from his native Italy by Louis XIV, Coronelli, in collaboration with Nolin, he set about constructing a massive pair of globes for the King of France.  During this period, Coronelli received access to the French geogrphical information compiled from many of the far reaches of the Globe, including America, Asia and Africa, allowing him to construct the most up to date maps of the period.  Following the end of his collaboration with Nolin, Coronelli returned home and both Nolin and Coronelli thereafter published a number of maps, with Nolin often providing credit to Coronelli in the map titles.  Many of these are among the finest and most up to date maps of the period for the relevant regions.
