Published by John Senex, 1711
After the fall of the Roman Empire, Italy was a geographic region of divided cities and states rather than a political entity, with boundaries determined by the sea and neighboring France, Switzerland and Germany.
This reproduction of the hand-colored, copperplate engraving "Italia Nova" was published in London in 1711 by John Senex, geographer to Queen Anne. Senex was a prolific publisher who had been elected to the Royal Society five years before this map was published.
