1508 LATE MEDIEVAL MAP OF THE KNOWN WORLD BY WALTZMULLER
1508 LATE MEDIEVAL MAP OF THE KNOWN WORLD BY WALTZMULLER
This is a late medieval map of the known world. This edition was commenced by Martin Waltzemüller about the year 1505. Mathias Ringmann was also employed on the work. The modern maps were prepared by Waltzemüller, and most of them--perhaps all--engraved as early as 1507. The completion of the text, however, was delayed; and in 1508 all of the material passed into the hands of Jacobus Eszler and Georgius Ubelin ... who edited and finally published the work in 1513. From Map: Claudii Ptolemei viri Alexandrini mathematice discipline philosophi doctissimi Geographie opus nouissima traductione e Grecorum archetypis castigatissime pressum, ceteris ante lucubratorum multo prestantius .... Pressus hic Ptolemaeus Argentine vigilantissima castigatione/industraiq[ue] Ioannis Schotti urbis indigene, anno Christi Opt. Max. MDXIII Marcii XII . [12 Mar. 1513]
