Fine example of Girolamo Bell'Armato's important early map of Tuscany, published in Venice by Bertelli and Forlani.

Bell'Armato's map, first published in 1536, is the earliest printed map of Tuscany. Born in Siena in 1493, Bell'Armato's 4 sheet map of Tuscany was a cartographic milestone.

Known in only a single example, Bell'Armato's work now survives primarily in the single sheet version of the map published by Bertelli and Forlani

Paolo Forlani (fl. ca. 1560-1571) was a prolific map engraver based in Venice. All that is known of his life are his surviving maps and prints, of which there are almost 100 (185 with later states included in the total). He also produced a globe and two town books.  It is likely he came from Verona and that he died in Venice in the mid-1570s, possibly of the plague.
