NY Times on Ricci Map Exhibition

The New York Times has a review of the Library of Congress’s exhibition of Matteo Ricci’s 1602 Chinese-language map of the world, which, it turns out, is being displayed across from the Library’s copy of Martin Waldseemüller’s map. (Seems appropriate.) Edward Rothstein’s article also goes into considerable detail about the Ricci map.
