FORESTI, Giacomo. [Early 16th century prospect of Athens]
El principio del Regno d'Athene. Venice: c.1503. Woodcut, 65 x 85mm, set in Italian text. Minor spotting in text page not affecting the view.
An early diagrammatic prospect of Athens from Foresti da Bergamo's 'Novissime Hystoriæ'. On the reverse are view of Chalkida and Epidavros in Dalmatia. Foresti was a noted historian in his day: his 'Supplementum Chronicarum' (1491), was plagarised by Hartmann Schedel, appearing word for word in the more famous 'Nuremberg Chronicle' (1493).
