This is a coherent collection of essays by two high placed and scientifically trained Venetian administrators. Boteros cosmography brought on top of his description of 5 continents and the islands of the world also a political comparison between the most important empires in the world including those in Africa, Asia and the Americas. Brusoni added his book on state formation and Christianisation in the Americas. Boteros other works, on good government and on the character and importance of cities became permanent members of the canon of basic texts in administration and is still studied today
