He compiled the publication Modern history, or The present state of all nations, from which this map was removed. The first volume of the work appeared in London in 1725. This map is from the Italian translation published from 1738 through 1761.

This map shows Paris, France in the east, Hamburg, Germany in the north, Venice, Italy in the south, and Poland in the west. The map is centered on the city of Nurenberg, Germany.
