Very detailed and early bird's-eye view of Venice (Venezia). The woodcut view of Venice from the Isolario is one of the most sought after of all maps by Benedetto Bordone. It shows the entire lagoon during the early 16th century with the most important canals, landmarks and more than 30 place names. Most probably based on the monumental Barbari wall map of Venice from 1500. On verso a small map of Murano.
From Libro di Benedetto Bordone... de tutte l'isole del mondo..., more commonly known as Isolario of Bordone, which first appeared in Venice in 1528. Three further editions followed in 1534, 1547 and 1565. The maps of all four editions were printed from the same woodblocks in Venice.
