A little known work embodying a geography of world-wide scope, including up-to-date information on the comparatively recent discovery of the American continent. Among the accounts of various expeditions, the book includes (on leaf C 2v .) a detailed reference to Sir Francis Drake’s famous circumnavigation of 1577-1580 when he made his passage through the Strait of Magellan with the aim of exploring the South Sea. The author mentions Drake’s stay with the friendly California Indians, his return voyage via the Molucca Islands, where he negotiated the important agreements for English trade with the Spice Islands, and his arrival at Plymouth in 1580. Following the Drake account is a reference to the later circumnavigation of Thomas Cavendish (Tomaso Gdiz), made in 1586-1588.

The book contains an interesting planisphere map, with the two facing orbs above a small Ptolemy world map, engraved by Alovisio Rosaccio. The left hemisphere shows the New World, with the Pacific Ocean as far as New Guinea, and Tierra del Fuego as an integral part of the otherwise unknown Southern continent; the right globe: Europe, Asia, Africa, with Japan to the extreme right, and the Southern continent (Terra Incognita) continued across the entire bottom of the map. In the center of the map are a portrait vignette of the young Duke Cosimo II de Medici (to whom the book is dedicated) and the Medici arms. As Rosaccio states himself (leaf C 2v .) this map is an improved version of another planisphere map which he published in 1597, bearing the same title and with the data on America newly made public added to it.

1530-1620), a physician and cosmographer, published a number of geographical works, among them an edition of Ptolemy in 1598, which he jdate mentions in the present work (leaf C 2v .) and for which he became widely known. The Discorso is Rosaccio’s last work.
