16th Century Antique Map of France by Ruscelli, 1574

16th Century Antique Map of France by Ruscelli, 1574

Date: 1574 (published) Venice. Dimensions: 7.4 x 10.4 inches (18.8 x 26.4 cm). This splendid Ruscelli map is from his work La Geografia di Claudio Tolomeo Alessandrino. Ruscelli based much of his work on that of Claudius Ptolemy and the atlas maps of Giacomo Gastaldi. This map focuses primarily on the territory including the Lowlands, and part of what would eventually become modern day France. Some regions of German, Italy, Spain, and Cornwall and a portion of England are also included. Cities are depicted with miniscule fortresses, castles and religious edifices, sized according to the population and importance of each city. Mountains, including the Pyrenees, are depicted beautifully. River systems are denoted. Large bodies of water are stippled. There is descriptive Italian text on the verso. Ruscelli is best known for his important revision of Ptolemy’s. Published posthumously in 1574. Claudius Ptolemy (85-165 CE), a Roman citizen of Greek descent from Alexandria, was the most influential of Greek astronomers and geographers of his time. He propounded the geocentric theory of the solar system which was to prevail for the next 1400 years. Many of Ruscelli’s maps are essentially enlarged versions of some of Gastaldi’s maps. Condition: This map is in A- condition. Minor thinning of paper in top margin near centerfold and fading in upper right quadrant. Otherwise a well-inked, crisp impression.

Ortelius was familiar with this map as early as 1570. Van der Broecke, 51. Karrow 48/2.1; Meurer p 180. He is the greatest and the best geographe and cartographe. Abraham Ortelius began his career as a colorist with Christophe Plantin, a printer in Antwerp. He was a cartographer and an humanist.
