This highly desirable  Ruscelli map is from his work La Geografia di Claudio Tolomeo Alessandrino.  Based on the works of Claudius Ptolemy and the atlas of Giacomo Gastaldi, it focuses on the Balkans, the ‘Powder Keg of Europe’, and on many of the countries in which they form part of the landscape.

The mountains are represented beautifully, river systems are shown in detail, and cities, towns and ports denoted throughout this 16th century map. A number of islands in the Adriatic Sea are also shown. The seas are stippled and the map is embellished by a  crest in the lower left corner.

Girolamo Ruscelli (1500-1566) was an Italian cartographer, polymath, humanist and editor, active in Venice during the early 16th century. Ruscelli is best known for his important revision of Ptolemy's Geographia, published posthumously in 1574.

Claudius Ptolemy (85-165 CE), a Roman citizen of Greek descent from Alexandria, was the most influential of Greek astronomers and geographers of his time. He propounded the geocentric theory of the solar system which was to prevail for the next 1400 years.

Condition: This map is in A condition. Well-inked plated sharp impression.  Italian text on the verso.
