[Bucentaur] Bucentoro. Solemnite Du Bucentaure, qui se Celebre a Venise le Jour de l'Ascension.
Exactement Dessinée sue le Lieu au jour par le Soin de Pierre Mortier. Libraire A Amsterdam.
[The Hague: Rutgeri Christophori Alberts, 1724.]
Engraving. 445 x 565mm (17½ x 22¼") very large margins. Creasing as normal. Evidence of cracks in the printing plate.
A magnificent view of the Bucentaur, the state barge of Venice, taking the doge out to the Adriatic to perform the 'Marriage of the Sea', a ceremony that symbolically wedded Venice to the sea on Ascension Day. The barge survived until 1798, when Napoleon had it destroyed to symbolise his victory over Venice. The plate first appeared in Pierre Mortier's edition of Johannes Blaeu's 'Townbooks of Italy' in 1704, although he also published it in the 'Le Neptune Francois ou Atlas Nouveau des Cartes Marines'. However the cracks in the bottom of the plate suggest this comes from the last issue of the 'Townbooks, 1724.
