An exceptional example of this rare separate-issue map of Iberia.
Forlani was one of the most prominent members of the 'Lafreri-school' group of mapmakers in Italy: not only did he publish his own maps, but also he was often commissioned to make maps by other publishers, including Camocio, Bertelli and Zaltieri in Venice, and Duchetti in Rome.
This is one of the few maps to bear his name: of the 97 maps attributed to him by David Woodward, eighty are unsigned.
