Zhifang waiji 職方外紀 : [5卷] / Airulüe zhuan 艾儒略撰.

" ... best known of [his] works is the World Atlas compiled in collaboration with Yang Tingyun, based on the map of Matteo Ricci and some manuscript notes by Diego de Pantoja and Sabatino de Ursis. This compilation seems to have been undertaken at the same time as a terrestrial globe made in 1623 by Nicolò Longobardi and Manuel Dias, now in the British Museum ... the Atlas was engraved in 1623 in Hangzhou under the title Zhifang waiji (5 juan) and later (ca. 1640) 6 juan. First ed. included in the Tianxue chuhan, copied into the eighteenth-century Imperial Library (present ed.)...." Cf. Dictionary of Ming Biography, pp. 4-5.
