According to Shirley Bartoli was a prolific Jesuit writer. Many of his works are in the British Library but not this one. This geographical work contains five folding maps consisting of the world, Fortuna Islands, Italy, Greece and Palestine. Surprisingly rare, the maps were not listed in Laor’s work on the Holy Land or Zacharakis’ original work on maps of Greece. They are engraved by Nikolaus Hautt, the son of David Nikolaus Hautt (1603-77), engraver, printer and bookseller of Strasbourg, Lucerne, Vienna and Constance. Provenance: manuscript inscription at top of half title ‘Collegii Soctis Jesu Sol[?]: 1675’; Sotheby’s 21 September 2001 lot 377. Not in Laor; Shirley (1993) 461; Tooley’s Dictionary (1999-2004); not in Zacharakis (1992); Zacharakis Annex (2016) 238a.
