La Gran Tartaria divisa nelle sue parti principali.. Rome, 1683. 440 x 550mm.
A map of Tartary after Cantelli da Vignola, published in the Mercurio Geografico.

The large title cartouche shows a Tartar family.

DE ROSSI, Giovanni Giacomo. [An unrecorded variant plate of De Rossi's map of Scandinavia]
La Scandinavia Divisa nelli suoi Regni di Svezia, Danimarca, Norvegia e Paese dei Lapponi. Rome, c.1678. Coloured. 385 x 540mm.
A previously unknown plate, duplicating De Rossi's map of Scandinavia after Sanson, but without De Rossi's name and address or date. This plate is 35mm shorter and 15mm narrower; however the map is on the same scale, so Finnmark runs into the printed border, whereas on the usual plate there is enough room for 'Oceano Settentrionale' to be written in the Barentz Sea. It also lacks engraver Giorgio Widman's signature.
