|An uncommon town plan of Palermo|
Amsterdam, Pierre Mortier, 1705. An uncommon map-view of Palermo in Sicily, with an extensive 162-point key. In 1663 Johannes Blaeu published his three-volume 'Townbooks of Italy', with this map appearing in the third volume, which focused on the Kingdom of Naples and Sicily. After Blaeu's death and the disastrous fire at his publishing house, the plates for the atlas were bought by Pierre Mortier, who added his own maps to the series and republished it as a four-volume set.
