Caption: Map of Italy. This is taken from the World Atlas of Frederick de Wit, dated 1689. The map shows the coast of Italy in astounding detail. The islands of Corsica and Sardinia are also represented. Note that Italy is shown as a variety of Grand Duchies and Kingdoms - Italy was only truly unified in the 1860s. Just below centre frame is an illustration depicting a naval battle (probably the rout of the Dutch at Messina, 1676).
