Tabula Africae IIII

Final edition of Ruscelli's map of the Northern part of Africa, bounded by the Mediterranean, Aethiopia Interior, the Canarie Islands, Asia Minor, Judia, the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf, Arabia Felix and the Nile, to its source.

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

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.
