Scope and content

Item is a map of Hispaniola from the second edition of Girolamo Ruscelli's printing of Ptolemy's Geographica, published by Vincenzo Valgrisi in Venice. The maps in Ruscelli's editions were reproduced and enlarged from the maps in the 1548, Giacomo Gastaldi, edition of the Geographica. The Geographica was important because it was the definitive atlas of the known world for centuries. Ruscelli's edition reintroduced the use of copper engraved maps which provided far more detail than woodcut engravings.
