A very nice example of Girolamo Ruscelli's map of the ancient world from his. La Geografia printed in Venice. One of three maps of the world maps in Ruscelli's Atlas.
This one is in Latin (translated from Italian in the 1561 edition). I think this is probably from the Third edition of Ruscelli's translation of Ptolemy's Geografia and first edition published by G. Ziletti in 1564 the first two Ruscelli editions have been published 1561 and 1562 by V. The maps are based on the maps of Jacopo Gastaldi which appeared in Mattioli's 1548 translation of Ptolemy's Geographia.
Ruscelli enlarged the maps and included several notable additions. A good clean impression, no worm holes. Size (excluding borders) 26 x 20cm.
