A handsome example of the 1542 Lyon edition of Macrobious with the famed woodcut world map illustrating the concept of the world being balanced by a great southern continent. As noted by Shirley:
The inhabited world north of the Equator is balanced by a southern continent and divided from it by water. Among the roughly 150 manuscripts recorded by Destombes dating from 1200 to 1500 AD nearly 100 contain a simple map illustrating Macrobius's theories.
The text of Cicero's Somnium Scipionis (a2r-a6r) precedes Macrobius' commentary. Edited by Arnoldus Vesaliensis, whose edition Gryphius first published in 1532.
This edition not recorded in Shirley.
