A rare and interesting Ptolemaic map of the northern African Mediterranean coastline and including all Sardinia, Sicily and Malta. This finely engraved miniature appeared in "the first pocket atlas" - Giacomo Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy's Geographia, a combination of that classical cartography with modern maps based on the latest reports including accounts from the great voyages of discovery. The map, on a trapezoid projection is decorated with images of exotic birds and a shipwreck, presumably St.Paul on the Maltese coast, mountains and rivers.
