About this Item: Artist: Ptolemy/Waldseemüller- Johann Schott Claudius ( - 1550); issued in: Strassburg; date: ca 1513, 1477. - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 28 x 46,5; - description: Map shows in trapezoid north Africa and the neighbouring countries. With the Mediterranean Sea and partly the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Rivers and mountains are roughly shown. On reverse the description with splendour-fully decorated letters.The typical Ptolomey watermark on the right side. - vita of the artist: Johann Schott (1477-1550). He reissued maps after Martin Waldessemueller. Schott was well known for his atlas : Tabula Moderna Germanie, reussued the Martin Waldseemueller maps from 1482 including 20 detailed region maps which makes the atlas of Johann Schott one oft he most important works of those days. Schott is also well known for his atlases: "Alexandri Magni"and "Margarita philosophica". Martin Waldseemüller was born some time in the 1470's in Radolfzell, Württemberg, in Germany. He began his education at the University of Freiburg in 1490. In 1507, he moved to Saint-Dié in Lorraine, France. Here, according to Hébert, Waldseemüller became a member of a small intellectual circle called Gymnasium Vosagense. He died in France in 1522.He was the author of the wall map of 1507, which named America for the first time. In that same year it is believed he completed the maps for an edition of Ptolemy's 'Geography'. It was not until 1513 though that it was published.Martin Waldseemüller, a highly accomplished scholar of geography, merged the science of mapmaking and the art of printing in this 1513 atlas, one of the most groundbreaking documents in the history of cartography.He intended this atlas as a new edition of Ptolemy's Geographia. In the group of Ptolemaic atlases this one is very important because it incorporates 20 modern maps which were not based upon the tradition of Ptolemy. Waldseemüller's use of a quadratic plane projection, was also a noteworthy advance. Johannes Schott was the printer, and the drawings were done by Martin Waldseemülller. The editors of the text were Jacobus Aeschler and Goeorge Uebel. Rene Duke of Lorraine, an art and science patron of the Renaissance period, made it possible for Waldseemüller to draw new maps in addition to copying those of Ptolemy. Waldseemueller abandoned Ptolemy's projection in favor of one based on rectilinear meridians and parallels. Although these newly drawn maps were completed in 1507, Waldseemüller's patron died in 1508, and it was not until 1512 the work could be printed. In addition to the twenty-six classical Ptolemaic maps, this atlas was accompanied by a supplement of twenty new maps that was published as a separate volume. In a forward written by Äschler and Uebel, we are told that that the map of the New World was drawn according to the newest and most reliable information, the source of which is identified as The Admiral. Researchers today believe that The Admiral is Columbus and for that reason call this atlas the Admiral Atlas. This atlas was printed using the same woodcut maps but with a few minor text corrections on the Schott press in Augsburg with uebel acting as editor. Claudius Ptolemy Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy (arround 100- 160 a.C.) is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.Most maps have a watermark of a triple pointed crown.

About this Item: 1507]., [Rome, 1507. Northern Africa Double-page engraved map, on two sheets joined, on laid paper, with a watermark of a T within a circle and crossbow with a circle, a few words underlined in red ink. This map shows an area of northern Africa covering most of Tunisia and Libya, with Sicily and Sardinia in outline in the north. Map from the beautiful third Rome edition of Ptolemy's Geographia. "This handsome edition is a reprinting of the copper-plate maps of the 1478 [and 1490] Ptolemy [the first Rome edition by Conrad Sweynheym and Arnold Buckinck, whose] maps are considered the finest Ptolemaic ones produced up to the time that the great Mercator engraved his Ptolemy of 1578. It is believed that Sweynheym was the one who first thought of applying the very new art of copper-engraving to the printing of maps, and he might have taken a hand in the actual engraving of them himself" (World Encompassed). While the Bologna edition of 1477 was the first atlas to use copperplate maps, the present series is generally regarded as superior for its clear captions, accurate projections and overall design. Also, there are indications the Bologna edition was hurried through the press: the captions were not engraved but stamped into the plates. The early Italian Ptolemys, particularly the Rome editions, are "superb testimonials of Italian craftsmanship without the picturesque but unscientific monsters of the medieval maps or the addition of the adventitious decoration of later work, relying for their beauty solely on the delicacy of their execution and the fineness of the material employed" (Tooley).

About this Item: Straßburg, Johannes Schott, or 1520, 1513, 1520. Condition: sehr guter Zustand. Karrow, R. W. Jr.: Mapmakers of the Sixteenth century and their maps, 80/21. - Seltene Holzschnittkarte Zentralrusslands von M. Waldseemüller aus dem Jahre 1513/1520. Zeigt das Gebiet zwischen Ostsee, dem Schwarzen Meer mit der Krim Halbinsel und dem Kaspischen Meer. Die großformatige Holzschnittkarte nach Ptolemaeus stammt aus dem ersten sogenannten 'Modernen Atlas' des berühmten Kosmographen Martin Waldseemüller. Der Atlas - betitelt GEOGRAPHIE OPUS NOVISSIMA TRADUCTIONE E GRECORUM ARCHETYPIS - wurde von Johann Schott in Strassburg im Jahre 1513 gedruckt und enthält neben den traditionellen 27 ptolemäischen Karten aus der Ulmer Ausgabe von 1482 auch 20 detaillierte Regionalkarten, weshalb der Atlas auch als eine der bedeutendsten Ptolemaeus Ausgaben angesehen wird. 1520 entstand die zweite Auflage bei Schott, gedruckt von den selben Holzstöcken. Wiederaufgelegt durch Laurent Fries und Johannes Grüninger mit verkleinerten Karten in den Jahren 1522 und 1525. - Insgesamt leicht gebräunt, zwei kleine Wurmgänge, etwas fleckig durch Abklatsch, Bugfalte oben und unten mit kleinem Einriss. Kräftiger, schöner Abdruck, sehr gutes Exemplar. Kleiner Einriss im unteren rechten Rand restauriert, mit ins Bild reichend. Sehr gute Erhaltung. - Rare woodcut map of Central Russia from M. Waldseemuller of 1513/1520. With the Crimea peninsula. Shows the area between the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea with the Crimea peninsula and Caspian Sea. This ptolemaic map comes from the first so called 'Modern Atlas' by the most famous of all early sixteenth-century cosmographers Martin Waldseemuller, since it is the first Ptolemy edition with twenty new regional maps beside the traditional twenty-seven Ptolemaic maps derived from the 1482 Ulm edition. The Atlas is titled GEOGRAPHIE OPUS NOVISSIMA TRADUCTIONE E GRECORUM ARCHETYPIS published by Johannes Schott in Strassburg 1513 and is one of the most important edition of Ptolemy Atlases. In 1520 a second edition of the atlas was printed by Schott from the same woodcut blocks. It was reissued 1522 and 1525 by Laurent Fries and Johannes Gruninger with size reduced maps. - Some minor overall browning, some occasional spotting from offsetting, small wormtrack at bottom, small tear at both ends of centrefold. Stong and good impression. Very good condition. Seller Inventory # 11470_0

About this Item: 1507]., [Rome, 1507. Ukraine and Russia Double-page engraved map, on two sheets joined, on laid paper, later manuscript annotations in red, no watermark, two tears to lower left skilfully repaired. The map shows part of present day Ukraine and Russia on the northern coast of the Black Sea. Two mountain passes (Portae Albaticae and Portae Sarmaticae) are marked with Greek pediments. The Portae Sarmaticae was the only pass in Ptolemy's time between Sarmatia and Iberia. The Pillars of Alexander are marked just above. Map from the beautiful third Rome edition of Ptolemy's Geographia. "This handsome edition is a reprinting of the copper-plate maps of the 1478 [and 1490] Ptolemy [the first Rome edition by Conrad Sweynheym and Arnold Buckinck, whose] maps are considered the finest Ptolemaic ones produced up to the time that the great Mercator engraved his Ptolemy of 1578. It is believed that Sweynheym was the one who first thought of applying the very new art of copper-engraving to the printing of maps, and he might have taken a hand in the actual engraving of them himself" (World Encompassed). While the Bologna edition of 1477 was the first atlas to use copperplate maps, the present series is generally regarded as superior for its clear captions, accurate projections and overall design. Also, there are indications the Bologna edition was hurried through the press: the captions were not engraved but stamped into the plates. The early Italian Ptolemys, particularly the Rome editions, are "superb testimonials of Italian craftsmanship without the picturesque but unscientific monsters of the medieval maps or the addition of the adventitious decoration of later work, relying for their beauty solely on the delicacy of their execution and the fineness of the material employed" (Tooley).

About this Item: Artist: Ptolemy/ Petrus de Turre Claudius; issued in: Rome; date: ca, 1490. - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 34,5 x 54; - description: Map shows total Spain with Portugal and the Balearic island of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza. - vita of the artist: Petrus de Turre puchased Conrad Sweynheyms plates in 1490 to reissue the maps based on Claudius Ptolemy notes. Claudius Ptolemy ( arround 100- 160 a.C.) Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today. Seller Inventory # EUE3560_500
