Description: 
This is a rare opportunity to acquire two original antique Globe Gores, one cropped quater and the other a full half, of the west coast of South America Peru & Chile, was published by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli (1650 - 1718) in the 1693 Venice edition of Atlante Veneto, Libro dei Globi.
The Gores are printed on heavy clean cabled paper, acquired by us in a large collection some years ago. Both gores have individual watermarks, one crossed keys and the other fler-di-lis.

In 1693 Coronelli published all his gores - from the 2in to the 42 in - in an atlas,  Libero dei Globi, part of the great series of atlases,  Atlante Veneto. Libero dei Globi was published by Coronelli to ensure his work was available to a wider audience, as very few could afford travel to Venice, Rome or Paris to view his completed globes.
