Septentrionalium Partium Nova Tabula : G. Ruscelli

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An elegantly engraved map, with the sea in typical stippled manner, of Greenland and the North Atlantic. Iceland is central to the map, but is surrounded by the mythical islands of Frisland, Estland, Podalida and Icaria - all taken from the notorious Zeno map of reputed voyages in the 14th century. This example is a later version of that map, as it appeared in Ruscelli's re-engraving and republication of Ptolemy's "Geographia". A few negligible wormholes in blank margins, but nevertheless a fine example.
