(2) 1661 plates (including maps, views, portraits, landscapes) and 5 tables, but most of them watercolored in color and some folded several times. Incorrect numbering, as per the index, as some plates are reported in the same map while other plates have a sub-number. The main work is part of Batelli’s revised and augmented second edition, with the exception of the first volume of Asia and of the first volume of America (whose number of pages and tables is unchanged), taken from the next edition, always from Batelli.
