" ... The same urge to impress the Chinese with Western achievements has prompted Ferdinand Verbiest to include in his Kunyu tushuo 坤輿圖說 (Illustrated Explanation of the Entire World, 1674), a whole series of such pictures derived from German, Flemish, and Dutch engravings: the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, exotic animals, a European galleon, and the Roman Collosseum." --Cf. Standaert, Handbook of Christianity in China, vol. 1, p. 810.
