This is an example of the first state (of three), still with the date of 1693 in the dedication roundel. This is a scarce map: it did not appear in all of Coronelli's atlases and the examples that did were often damaged because of the large height and width. MORETTO: 114, first state of three, 'considered one of the most beautiful and appreciated Venetian maps'.

NOLIN, Jean Baptiste. [The theatre of the War of the Spanish Succession in Italy]
Carte Generale du Theatre de la Guerre en Italie ou sont marquées les Routes que l'on peut tenir tant de France, depuis Paris, que D'Allemagne depuis Vienne en Austriche pour allere a Milan, a Venise, a Florence a Rome a Naples considerables sur ces Routes. Paris: Nolin, c.1701. Faint original outline colour. 255 x 345mm.
A map showing not just Italy south to Naples, but also Switzerland, France north to Paris and Austria north to Vienna. It was published near the start of the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-14), when France went to war with Austria over whether a Habsburg or a Bourbon was going to rule. It carefully marks the roads from Paris to Italy, via the Alps and the coastal routes, as well as the routes the Austrian armies would take from Vienna. Unfortunately for the French the Imperial armies were led by Prince Eugene of Savoy, whose skill prevented the French using their superior resources. By the end of the war most of the Spanish possessions in Italy were ceded to Austria.
