Anglia Et Hibernia Nova : G. Ruscelli

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This particular map is from the 1599 volume of "Geografia Di Tolomeo ..." and shows Ruscelli's map of the 'modern' British Isles slightly revised since its first appearance. Ruscelli's map used George Lily's outline for the British Isles. Major cities are names, rivers and areas of high ground are marked, and a sailing ship and sea monsters are added in the surrounding waters. Latin text to verso. A fine example of this early and relatively "modern" outline for the islands.
