1561 Fine, Desirable Ruscelli Map Of South Africa For Sale
1561 Ruscelli Map - Africa Nuova Tavola
Claudius Ptolemy, an Alexandrine Greek, is probably the greatest of all early geographers. Working out of Alexandria in the first century AD he wrote a geography that was only published in Europe in the mid 1400's. His work provided the first real printed maps and he was held in such high regard that few attempted to correct these thousand plus year old descriptions until the mid 1500's. This map comes from Ruscelli's 'Ptolemaeus La Geografia' which published new (Tabula Nova) mapsalong withmaps based on Ptolemy's writings.
Thisengravingfrom the 1561 edition ofRuscelli'satlas, is one of the Tabula Nova maps.
