Copper engraving, mm 283x214. Only state. The cartouche in top right corner bears: “Creta insula, hodie Ca(n)dia in medio Ponto sita est…”. Very good impression, incredibly large margins, just a brown stain in left margin. This rare map is based on the Zorzi-Pagano map of 1538, even if oriented with east on top, and clearly derives from the Bonifacio 1568. In this period Duchetti was active in Venice with Forlani, to whom Woodward attributes the plate, which was later brought to Rome, where it was acquired by Orlandi in 1602 and Van Schoel in 1614. 6 copies known in public libraries. Woodward (1992), n. 51; Zacharakis (2009) 1426; Bifolco-Ronca (2018), 722.
