From "Atlante Novissimo" by Antonio Zatta published in Venice in 1779-1784.
Antonio Zatta (1775-1797) was the most prominent Italian map publisher of the late 18th and early 19th century. In his very famous Atante Novissimo he updates and redefines the traditional title cartouche by replacing the mythic elements common to the 17th and 18th century with more representative images such as figural depictions on the map itself like typical flora or fauna and products.
