Historical notes: 
Isolari (books of islands), produced during the 14th to 16th centuries, are maps of the Mediterranean islands that were used on board ships. They served the function of indicating to sailors where shallow waters and reefs might be found, but they also were literary works. The author of this book, Bartolomeo, was given the name of "Il Sonetti" because of the sonnets he wrote to accompany the depictions of the islands.
