Copper engraving, uncolored as published on the full text sheet. Fine engraved rare map of China published in Giovanni Botero's 'Relationi di Givanno Botero' 1598 in Brescia. The miniature maps published by G. Botero are close imitations of those published in Phillip Galle's 1593 edition with Italian text. The fine engraved maps by Botero are very much in the style of Abraham Ortelius's miniature map, they are engraved with woods, miniature, views, some even with decorative sea monsters and ships. An early miniature map of China, showing also the Chinese wall, with the neighboring Japan extending towards Malacca and Borneo.
