Antonio Zatta (fl. 1757-1797) was a leading Italian editor, cartographer and publisher. Little is known about his life beyond his many published works that have survived.
It is possible that he was born as early as 1722 and lived until 1804. He lived in Venice and his work flourished between 1757 and 1797. He is best known for his maps and atlas, Atlante Novissimo (1779-1785 ), and for his prolific production of prints and books that are both precise and aesthetic. Zatta clearly had a large network from which to draw information; this is how he was able to publish the first glimpse of the islands visited by Captain Cook in the Atlante Novissimo. Zatta has also published books on plays and architecture.
