Coronelli elected to follow the Dutch interpretation of arctic Canada, but added a single waterway almost linking Hudson Strait with Cumberland Strait, possibly as a compromise to the Sanson version. Some of the half-gores were reprinted in the 1696-1697 edition of his Isolario and later in his Libro del Globi.
The remarkable Vincenzo Coronelli (1650-1718), encyclopaedist, geographer, inventor and Doctor of Theology, was citizen of the Republic of Venice. He was also one of the most prominent mapmakers and publishers in Europe of his day.
Vincenzo Coronelli, in addition to being an ordained Franciscan priest who eventually became Father General of his order, was also one of the most prominent mapmakers and publishers in Europe of his day. He was appointed official Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic in 1685, a year after he founded the world's earliest geographic society, "L'Accademia Cosmografica degli Argonauti" in the same city.
