Natolia Nuova Tavola  [includes part of Cyprus]

Interesting map of part of Asia Minor and Cyprus, extending from Constantinople to Armenia. Includes most of Cyprus.

The map first appeared in the 1561 edition of Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geografia.

Ruscelli's Atlas is an expanded edition of Gastaldi's Atlas of 1548. This atlas has been called the most comprehensive atlas produced between Martin Waldseemüller's Geographiae of 1513 and the Abraham Ortelius Theatrum of 1570. Ruscelli and Gastaldi's maps were beautifully engraved on copper, marking a turning point in the history of cartography. From that point forward, the majority of cartographic works used this medium. As it was a harder material than wood, this medium gave the engraver the ability to render more detail. Gastaldi sought the most up-to-date geographical information available, making the modern maps in Ruscelli's Geographia among the best modern maps of the period.

Girolamo Ruscelli (1500-1566) was a cartographer, humanist, and scholar from Tuscany. Ruscelli was a prominent writer and editor in his time, writing about a wide variety of topics including the works of Giovanni Boccaccio and Francesco Petrarch, Italian language, Italian poetry, medicine, alchemy, and militia. One of his most notable works was a translation of Ptolemy’s Geographia which was published posthumously.

There is limited information available about Ruscelli’s life. He was born in the Tuscan city of Viterbo to a family of modest means. He was educated at the University of Padua and moved between Rome and Naples until 1548, when he moved to Naples to work in a publishing house as a writer and proofreader. He remained in the city until his death in 1566.
