Description
Italie, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Palmanova; Johan Faber / Hieronimus Megiser - Palma - 1601-1620
Plante rare de Palmanova

Small and very rare map of the village of Palmanova, clearly inspired by Valegio’s slightly prior map. It differs from it due to the presence of the signature of engraver Johan Faber on bottom left and the hasty burin lines.
Taken from the equally rare work by Hieronimus Megiser "Paradisus Deliciarum", published in Leipzig in 1610.
The German artist active in Leipzig from 1592 to 1620, who signed himself as Johan Faber Jun(ior) fe(cit) in the plate to distinguish himself from his father who worked in the same field, claimed the originality of the drawing several times, but it was clearly copied from Valegio’s 1580 map, so much so that Faber inevitably fell into the same toponymic inconsistencies as the original prototype.

8 x 12 cm (the whole sheet 15 x 17.5).
Excellent printing and inking.
