A fine lifetime portrait of the distinguished mathematician, linguist and cartographer whose mapmaking reputation hang by the maps produced for his edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia" and "Cosmographia". The portrait, in good condition, was printed on the verso of a Cosmographia titlepage which has been repaired but has some print-loss.
