An unusual and rare 'map-view' of the Panama Canal, probably published as a publicity exercise before the Canal was finished. A table under the world map lower left gives the distances from London, Le Havre & Genova to San Francisco, Valparaiso & Sydney, via Cape Horn and the Canal (and, in the case of Sydney, the Cape of Good Hope). We have seen an identical print, publsihed by Cesare Vimercati, a publisher also in Livorno.
