1574 Ruscelli Map of Scandinavia and Northern Europe --

Lot 0064 Details

Description
  • Title: 1574 Ruscelli Map of Scandinavia and Northern Europe -- Schonladia Nuova
  • Cartographer: G Ruscelli
  • Year / Place: 1574, Venice
  • Map Dimension (in.): 7.2 X 9.8 in.

    This is an excellent map of Scandinavia and northern Europe presented on a trapezoidal projection. It is one of the earliest obtainable maps of the region. It is Ruscelli's 'modern' map with several Ptolemaic features of the map. Norway is separated from Greenland by a narrow strait and Iceland is depicted as a long, thin island called Thyle, which is depicted larger than Ireland (Hiberniae). Part of Britain is shown in its unique early form in which Scotland appears to be jutting sharply to the east. The Faroes and Shetlands are one island group. The Baltic Sea is shown narrower than it really is. First state with Italian text on verso.

    Reserve: $500.00
