Description:

Second edition of Rossi's double hemisphere map of the world, based upon the work on Nicolas Sanson, the single most important French mapmaker of the 17th Century, whose modernistic approach to cartography would redefine commercial cartography over the next 50 years and signal the beginning end of Dutch domination of the commercial map trade.

Rossi published this scarce World Map in his Mercurio Geographico . . . , first published in 1674.  In 1684, the map was revised. Most notably, a more complete and defined coastline for the unknown southern continent was included.
