PTOLEMY, C. / MERCATOR, GERARD, 1584
Image Quality: High Quality High



Gerard Mercator's 1584 Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geography. Created towards the end of the celebrated Flemish cartographer's life, it is said that Mercator intended his version of Geography to be the most faithful interpretation ever published and unlike previously published editions it contained no maps of the new world. Mecator professed that other editions of Geography, with their inclusion of contemporary maps and knowledge unknown to second century geographers, had strayed too far from Ptolemy's original work. For comparison and analysis of how Mercator presented his interpretation, you may want to reference the 1482, 1541, and 1545 editions of Geography in the HMW Rare Book Library.
