Old, antique map of Africa, by Francesco Santini.


Francesco and Paolo Santini (c.1729-1793)

Francesco Santini, a Venetian publisher, acquired the printing plates of Vaugondy’s Atlas Universel …, a commercial and cartographic success, with widespread influence on mapmakers throughout Europe. Together with his brother Paolo, he commissioned a new set of plates and reissued the atlas in 1776. The following year, Paolo Santini assigned all his publication rights to M. Remondini, who in 1777 reissued the same atlas but with his name.
