Whitby was an amateur lithographer who established a private press at Newlands.

In Venetia alla libraria dalla Colonna l'Anno M.D.L.X.VII.
Engraving with letterpress on verso. 268 x 408mm. 10½ x 16". Repairs to centrefold.
Extremely rare bird's-eye plan of Geneva, engraved by Paolo Forlani for Giulio Ballino's "Civitatum Aliquot Insigniorum, et locorum, magis munitorum exacta delineatio" (three editions 1567-9, printed by Bolognino Zaltieri). This collection of townplans pre-dates the Braun & Hogenberg 'Civitatis Orbis Terrarum', which is generally believed to be the first of its kind. It is also among the first engraved views of Geneva. Forlani was a major figure in the Venetian map trade in the C16th, one of the so-called "Lafreri-type" engravers. His work is prized for the quality of the engraving, of which this is a fine example, with crisp, detailed engraving. Under the map is a 12-point key to the important buildings.
