Notes: The map is in the upper half of the sheet, while a large plan of the harbour area, with a key to place-names is in the lower half of the sheet. De Rossi’s atlas, like Coronelli’s atlas of the same period, has no standard collation. The 95 maps of the first volume are dated between 1667 and 1689 and the forty in the second between 1690 and 1696, they are mainly derived from Sanson and Cantelli da Vignola. Maps of particular interest are: the celestial hemisphere after Francesco Brunacci; Cantelli’s four-sheet wall map of the Low Countries; Ameti’s four-sheet maps of the Patrimonio di S. Pietro and Lazio, showing the environs of Rome in early Christian and contemporary eras; and Cantelli’s four-sheet map of Piemonte.
