Dapper cites the author of the map as Marco Boschini, however it is in a laqrger format than the map which appears in Boschini's Isolario of1658 [ see Zacharakis map no 590/392]which is only 180x280mm. In the map here more mountains are engraved in Beotia and also the script of the title is enlarged. The earlier version does not have any ships below the Island.
