Indochina by Cantelli da Vignola, published by Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. 1692

de Rossi Family

Seventeenth-century Rome contained the famous publishing house of de Rossi. Two branches of the family used the addresses of the Piazza Navona and the Piazza della Pace; the latter was the more important house. Giuseppe de Rossi founded the house from at least 1613 and continued until he died in 1639. Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi flourished from 1649 to 1691. In 1677, he published a folio atlas titled Mercurio Geografico. It was drawn almost entirely from the cartography of the Sanson family in Paris. Whether it was with their permission or simple plagiarism is unknown, but they are credited. (Burden)

Giuseppe Rossi (flourished 1613-1639), Publisher at 'Piazza della Pace'.

Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi (1627-1691), Printer and publisher at 'Alla Pace all'insegna di Parigi', Rome.

Domenico de Rossi (flourished c. 1691-c. 1720), Successor to Giovanni Giacomo Rossi.
