Pub Note:
This is a very attractive and scarce atlas by a cartographer from Naples. Not in Phillips or British Museum. Marzolla prints extensive notes with his maps, listing his cartographic sources and giving political and statistical information on the areas covered. No title page (probably issued that way) and with a manuscript list of contents. The map of "Nuova California" is based on the Hypolite Ferry map of 1850 and is discussed by Wheat. The maps are dated from 1840 to 1856. Outline color. The covers are brown paper covered boards with a leather spine embossed with "Marzolla. Atlante geografico. G.B." in gilt.
