Nolli, Giambattista, ca. 1692-1756  
Rome 1748. The Pianta Grande di Roma of Giambattista Nolli in Facsimile; with an Introductory Essay by Allan Ceen
 Picture
Publisher: facsimile reprint Highmount, N.Y., J. H. Aronson, 1984.
Atlas portfolio, vii p., 12 leaves of plates (map); 176 x 208 cm. assembled. Facsimile of Nuova pianta di Roma / data in luce da Giambattista Nolli, Rome, 1748. Reproduced from "an original set of the last state" owned by Henry A. Millon (publisher's preface). Bibliography, p. vii. Map data: Scale 1: 2900; 1 palmo romano di architettura = 223.4 mm. Coordinates: a 2900. Maps of the city of Rome may be divided into two distinct groups: those preceding Nolli’s 1748 Pianta Grande, and those following it. The second group follows Nolli in more than one sense, both chronologically and graphically. Most maps published between 1748 and 1870 either trace the Nolli map or use it as a base.

Nolli, Giambattista, ca. 1692-1756  
Nuova Pianta di Roma. Data in luce da Giambattista Nolli. Rome, 1748
 Picture
Publisher: Rome, 1748; facsimile Woodstock, NY, Aronson [1992?].
Facsimile poster, 36 x 43 inches / 57 x 81 cm., printed in black & white. Giambattista Nolli's extraordinarily detailed plan of Rome is not only a definitive record of the late Baroque city but a benchmark in the history of cartography. Every street, lane, and alley is represented, as well as the footprint of city blocks and public buildings in outline, representations of ancient Roman buildings, and open spaces, courtyards and piazzas. Highly evocative for those who know the city and a wealth of detail for those who wish to visit. This poster ships by weight in the sturdy triangular priority box. stock#Flat072. The plan is also offered by this firm in a 12-sheet boxed edition.
