The book was a popular work that was reprinted over many years and in a number of languages, the La Relationi was a geographical and political discourse on the world. Not all editions did include the continent maps.

A fine copy of fourth and final edition of Giovanni Lorenzo d'Anania's work "L'Universale Fabrica Del Mondo." including four copperplate engraved maps of each of the known continents by Giovanni Botero.
The geography and place names on the maps are closely based on Abraham Ortelius' 1570 maps.

The map of Africa is in its first state and on its turn based on the D'Anania map of 1582. The map was likely engraved by Girolami Poro of Padua (1520-1604). Ref.: Betz, Africa, 32, first state.
The map of America in a first state (of 2). Ref.: Burden, Mapping of America, 86.
