- Engraver, miniaturist, painter and cartographer, brother of the painter Cosimo Rosselli. The principal engraver in Florence in the 1480s and 1490s. Probably died before 1513. The only signed and dated work is a 'Map of the World' (1506), the earliest printed planisphere to show the recent discoveries of the New World. But numerous engravings are attributed to him since Hind.
