A scarce and finely engraved Italian map of China and Japan with a particularly elegant title cartouche. The map has a peninsula Korea but a vast landmass extending northwards from the Japanese mainland entitled "Tartari Di Jupy". Cherubs, swags and fruit-filled cornucopia decorate the title details which are topped by a well-dressed oriental figure. Giacomo Rossi was one of a small group of Rome mapmakers active at this time competing unsuccessfully against the established Dutch and emerging Paris-based cartographers.
