The Genoese Cartographic Tradition and Christopher Columbus

Roma: Istituto Poligrafico e Zecca Dello Stato Libreria Dello Stato, 1997. Hardcover. 216p., an expensive production (courtesy government monies), dozens of very crisp clean folding color reproductions (of maps: in color, sepia, whatever is called for). Folio hardbound, 12x8 inch buff papered boards overprinted in sepia (map element) and black (titling of volume in hand). Upper cover yawns slightly, we see no other structural flaw and no other flaws of any kind. Nuova Raccolta Colombiana.

Produced by the Ministry of Cultural and Environmental Assets, National Commission for the Celebration of the Quincentennial of the Discovery of America. A copyright warning straight out of a bad 1990s web translator (but I repeat myself): "It is forbidden the reproduction with any proceedings of this work or of some sides of it. As well as the possession and the sale of abusive copies of it. Each abuse will be persecuted by the law..."
