Untitled world map
Floriano, Antonio, active 1545-1555 (Cartographer)
Type of resource
In 1555, the Venetian Senate granted Antonio Floriano of Udine a privilege (the Renaissance equivalent of a copyright) to publish this map of the world. In his application to the Senate, Floriano wrote that he had used his "diligence and knowledge" to create "a mappemonde which has never been made before, with the aid of which one can easily study and learn cosmography and see the entire picture of the world, since it can be reduced to spheric form." Dramatically, Floriano wrote that the map had caused him "so much drudgery and sweat," such "heavy toil," that it defied the imagination.
The Abstract/Description provided for this map is taken from an accompanying gallery schedule.
