    From a series of maps by Mercier, here a beautiful map for the island and its nearby neighbors. A two tone color process depicts the mountainous terrain from a smoldering Etna to the hills of Palermo and Messine. A product of its time, it retains a certain art deco influence, and strong palette of colors. Aside from the native work of firms like DeAgostini, this might be our favorite depiction of the island from the time.

    Condition is very good, professionally conserved and backed on linen. Image size is approximately 16.25 x 22.25 (inches)
