Background: A fine example of De Rossi’s atlas map, similar to Coronelli’s maps of the same period, with engraved decorative title. The atlas included 150 engraved outline hand colored maps with decorative title cartouche, on 181 sheets. Maps are dated between 1669 and 1715, issued by Giov. De Rossi and Domenico de Rossi, they are mainly derived from Cantelli da Vignola’s maps, an important seventeenth-century cartographer who pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli, and Nicolas Sanson (1600 1667) a French cartographer, termed by some the creator of French geography. Many of the maps were engraved by Baudrand, Franciscus Donia, G. Falda, Jean Lhuilier, Vin Mariotti, Gasparo Pietro Santa, Salomon Rogiers, & Giorgio Widman, Lubin, Titi, Ameti, Magini and Mattei. Giovanni Giacomo De Rossi (1627 – 1691) was an Italian printer and publisher active in 17th century Rome. By the mid-17th century the Rossi firm was considered the most active and important press in Rome. Please note all items auctioned are genuine, we do not sell reproductions.
