Il Mappamondo di Fra Mauro a cura di Tullia Gasparrini Leporace. Presentazione di Roberto Almagià. Roma, Istituto Poligrafico dello Stato, (1956). Gasparrini Leporace Tullia (a cura di) Come nuovo/ BrossuraQuantità: 1Prezzo: EUR 1.250,00 Descrizione libro: Cartella editoriale tela, in folio, [mm. 512 x 360], contenente un fascicolo in brochure di pp. 77 - (3) e 48 tavv. num. fototipiche a colori che riproducono il mappamondo, una tavola n.n. in bianco e nero con il quadro d¿unione delle tavole e un foglio di acetato che permette, sovrapposto alle tavole di ritrovare le didascalie trascritte nel saggio, grazie alle coordinate che le accompagnano. Piatti incorniciati da un doppio filetto in oro, quello esterno più spesso. Al piatto anteriore un filetto dorato circolare comprende il titolo dell¿opera ed al centro il medaglione con il ritratto di Fra Mauro e l¿epigrafe Frater Maurus S. Michaelis Moranensis de Venetiis Ordinis Camaldulensis Chosmographus Incomparabilis. Al dorso titolo e note tipografiche in oro. Edizione voluta dal Comune di Venezia per celebrare il settimo centenario della nascita di Marco Polo con il concorso del Ministero della Pubblica Istruzione e della Fondazione Cini di Venezia sotto la cura di Tullia Gasparrini Leporace direttrice della Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, dov¿è conservata la carta. Il mappamondo costituisce il monumento più alto della cartografia medievale, si tratta probabilmente di una copia di quello che venne realizzato dal veneto Fra Mauro su richiesta del re del Portogallo Alfonso cui l¿opera venne inviata nel 1459. Sebbene, forse, fosse conservata nel 1779 nel monastero di Alcobaza in Portogallo, ora è perduta. Fra Mauro, era un camaldolese del convento di S. Michele di Murano come recita la legenda della medaglia a lui coeva, riprodotto anche al piatto anteriore. L¿autore si trovava nel monastero di S. Michele nel 1439, ma un documento attesta un Frater Maurus de Venetiis nel 1409, nel periodo per il quale non ci sono documenti che lo riguardano, potrebbe essere stato lontano ¿ dimorò nel monasteri di S. Michele a Leme in Istria, dove realizzò una carta dei possedimenti dl monastero ¿ poi nel 1444 è chiamato a far parte della commissione che doveva risolvere il problema della deviazione delle acque dl Brenta. Dal 1448 i registri del monastero ricordano l¿acquisto di colori e oro per le sue opere insieme al nome di due collaboratori: Francesco da Cherso e Andrea Bianco, autore quest¿ultimo di un atlante nautico del 1436 e di un mappmondo del 1448. Morì prima del 20 ottobre 1459, quando, sempre nei registri del convento, si ricorda che le copie dei mappamondi, dei disegni e delle scritture erano state depositate a S. Giuliano alla Giudecca in una cassa chiusa da lucchetti. Il mappamondo, realizzato a colori su pergamena, ha un contorno leggermente ellittico (m. 1,96 x 1,93) ed è inscritto in un quadrato di m. 2,23: gli spazi rimanenti, agli angoli, sono occupati da lunghe didascalie che contengono le conoscenze dell¿epoca in materia geografica e cosmografica; nell¿angolo inferiore sinistro è disegnato il paradiso terrestre. Non sono presenti scale metriche, ma sui bordi sono indicati i punti cardinali ¿ l¿orientamento della carta è con il sud in alto, come nelle carte arabe ¿ vi sono raffigurati i continenti allora conosciuti. Il mappamondo è oltremodo ricco di didascalie, realizzate dopo il disegno, come mostra le sovrapposizioni, realizzate da due mani diverse: alcune sono realizzate su piccoli pezzetti di pergamena incollate nascondendo forse altre scritte precedenti o coprendo piccoli dettagli, alcune non sono state completate, come se il lavoro non fosse stato terminato. Per una datazione più precisa dell¿opera è stato segnalato che Fra Mauro, nelle didascalie, ignora la caduta di Costantinopoli nel 1453. Al verso della tavola sulla quale è incollata la pergamena si legge comunque "MCCCCLX Adì XXV Avosto fo complido questo lavor" il che testimonierebbe che fu completata dopo la.

Item Description: Venice, 1806. Folio, folding map, engraved plate; some light foxing and minor marginal staining, uncut in modern quarter morocco. The only substantial work on Fra Mauro's famous world map: the last and one of greatest medieval mappa mundi.Fra Mauro's mappamundi (1457) is approximately two metres in diameter, was drawn on parchment and mounted on wood. It is full of detail, carefully coloured, and annotated with many legends. Though the coasts are drawn in a style recalling that of the portolan charts, the effect is definitely that of a mappamundi, not a nautical chart, especially as it is oriented with the south at the head. It is the most important of fifteenth-century maps, the last important pre-Columbian map of the world, and it represents the culmination of medieval cartography on the eve of the Renaissance. His delineation of Ethiopia, though unduly spread over a wide area, is wonderfully correct, and shows the Sinus Aethiopicus by which Henry the Navigator thought he could reach Ethiopia and so "Prester John." It is in his map that the greatest influence of the Marco Polo narratives is seen before printed editions began to be disseminated; he was able, by personal intercourse, to gather additional information from Nicolo de' Conti, who had returned from the east in 1440, and it is also of special interest in showing that, at least forty years before the Portuguese reached India, Arab sailing directions covering the east coast of Africa, India, and the seas beyond to the vicinity of Sumatra, were available in western Europe.It 'uniquely fused the three predominant medieval map forms-the portolan chart, the mappamundi and the Ptolemaic atlas-with knowlegde drawn from the latest maritime exploration to create what was, in effect, a compendium of current knowledge about the world. It is both an authoritative cartographic source and a supremely imaginative and beautifully realised vision of the extent of the world in the pre-Columbian period' (Mapping our World). Very little is known about Fra Mauro (c. 1390-1459?) save that he was a lay member of the Camaldolese order at the monastery of San Michele di Murano near Venice and remained there all his life. He was celebrated after his death as as cosmographus incomparabilis, or cosmographer without peer.Zurla's handsome work is the earliest on Fra Mauro's map and the first to include a reproduction of it in bookform. Placido Zurla (1769-1834) had a unique insight into Mauro's monumental achievement as at the age of 18 he had joined the same Camaldolese order as Fra Mauro and as Librarian, had access to Mauro's map. Fra Mauro's map was the centrepiece of the 2013 Mapping our world exhibition: the first time in over 5 centuries the map had left Venice and this is the indispensable first substantial reference work on it.

Item Description: Venice, 1806. Folio, folding map, engraved plate; contemporary calf, spine in compartments with gilt bands. Fra Mauro's mappamundi (1457) is approximately two metres in diameter, was drawn on parchment and mounted on wood. It is full of detail, carefully coloured, and annotated with many legends. Though the coasts are drawn in a style recalling that of the portolan charts, the effect is definitely that of a mappamundi, not a nautical chart, especially as it is oriented with the south at the head. It is the most important of fifteenth-century maps, the last important pre-Columbian map of the world, and it represents the culmination of medieval cartography on the eve of the Renaissance. His delineation of Ethiopia, though unduly spread over a wide area, is wonderfully correct, and shows the Sinus Aethiopicus by which Henry the Navigator thought he could reach Ethiopia and so "Prester John." It is in his map that the greatest influence of the Marco Polo narratives is seen before printed editions began to be disseminated; he was able, by personal intercourse, to gather additional information from Nicolo de' Conti, who had returned from the east in 1440, and it is also of special interest in showing that, at least forty years before the Portuguese reached India, Arab sailing directions covering the east coast of Africa, India, and the seas beyond to the vicinity of Sumatra, were available in western Europe.It 'uniquely fused the three predominant medieval map forms-the portolan chart, the mappamundi and the Ptolemaic atlas-with knowlegde drawn from the latest maritime exploration to create what was, in effect, a compendium of current knowledge about the world. It is both an authoritative cartographic source and a supremely imaginative and beautifully realised vision of the extent of the world in the pre-Columbian period' (Mapping our World).
