This fine Ruscelli map is from his work La Geografia di Claudio Tolomeo Alessandrino.  Based on the work of Ptolemy, it depicts the entire region of Tuscany as it was divided in the 16th century. The map is highly detailed, depicting settlements, town and cities of the region. Cities, fortifications, churches and cathedrals all have their own symbols on the map. Additionally, river systems, ports and mountain ranges are denoted and numerous islands off the west coast of Tuscany are depicted.

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

Condition: This map is in A condition. Heavily inked with some minimal fading of print of the right neatline and border, otherwise sharp impression. Italian text on the verso.
