RUGGIERI, Ferdinando. [Separate-issue town plan of 18th century Florence]
Pianta della città di Firenze. Presso Molini.? Firenze: Giuseppi Molini, 1847. Coloured. 505 x 665mm. Binding folds flattened, remargined on all sides.
Antique town plan of Florence by the architect Ferdinando Ruggieri (1691-1741), his only foray into cartography, issued originally in 1731. The allegorical cartouche lower left features a man representing the River Arno and Marzocco, the lion of Florence. This example was published a century later, but in the original style, from a copper plate and on thick laid paper, probalby for the tourist trade.
