Publication HistoryThis map was published c. 1914 by Ernesto Graziadei.
Ernesto Graziadei (fl. c. 1890 - 1920) was an Italian artist and photographer based in Venice. Graziadei created glass works as well as photographs and opened a gallery space on St. Marc's Square in Venice to sell artwork. He was involved in founding Pauly and C. in 1902 which them merged with the Compangia di Venezia e Murano after both companies were purchased in 1919. They were then resold under the name that they trade under today, which is Pauly and C. - Compagnia Venezia Murano.
