CHINA: Chinae Compendiosa Descriptio.
- A rare westward oriented miniature map shows china and a part of the Philippines and Japan. The Great Wall is clearly presented on the right-hand side. This uncommon map is a derivative of the famous Ortelius' map of China. It was made by Gabriel Bucelinus (Bucelin) and published in a miniature atlas Nuclei historiae universalis, cum sacrae, tum prophanae ad dies, annosque relatae, auctarium in 1658. Bucelinus was a German Benedictine polymath, Humanist, and cartographer, who published more than fifty works on genealogy, world history, hagiography and church history. The atlas and maps from it are very rare on the market.
