Early edition of Zatta's map of the Philippines, Indian and Southeast Asia.

Striking regional map of Southeast Asia, extending from the Philippines and Moluccas to India and the Maldives, and north to Tibet.

Decorative scroll title cartouche.

This is the first of at least 3 states (1784, 1795, 1799).

Antonio Zatta (fl. 1757-1797) was a prominent Italian editor, cartographer, and publisher. Little is known about his life beyond his many surviving published works. It is possible that he was born as early as 1722 and lived as late as 1804. He lived in Venice and his work flourished between 1757 and 1797. He is best known for his atlas, Atlante Novissimo (1779-1785), and for his prolific output of prints and books that were both precisely made and aesthetically pleasing. Zatta clearly had a large network from which to draw information; this is how he was able to publish the first glimpse of the islands visited by Captain Cook in the Atlante Novissimo. Zatta also published books of plays and architecture.
