RICHARD NICHOLSON of CHESTER

A WORLD OF ANTIQUE MAPS AND PRINTS

James Pepper reading

The Cartographer

ANTONIO ZATTA

Flourished 1750 - 1804

Sorry no individual county maps of the British Isles by this 18th century Italian cartopher but I felt I had to include his name in this guide as there are interesting maps of groupls of counties.

Antonio Zatta was and publisher and printer working in Venice, Amongst the atlases he published he is perhaps best known for his Atlante novissio... which was published in four volumes from 1775 to 1785. I have decided in the case of this mapmaker to include a selction of his maps of other parts of the world. As you will see there is a very definite design which repeats in each map so I trust will help you to identify any specimens of British Isles maps from the series.

Richard and Nelson

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
