Description

A large format regional map from and Italian edition of Ptolemy, printed by Nicolo Todescho in Florence. This edition is noteworthy for including the first 3 modern maps to be included in a Geographia. The Florence edition is attributed by Nordenskold as published in 1478, is one of the earliest and rarest of early printed maps. Coming only a few decades after Gutenberg's first printed work. This map is not reported in any edition of Jolly. Printed on two sheets. Minor repairs where the sheets are joined and at the margins. Still an excellent cartographic incunable.
