Title : Geografia cioe Descrittione Universale della Terra ... Nuovamente ... Rincontrati, & Corretti ... Gio. Ant. Magini ... Opera ... Tradotta dal R.D. Leonardo Cernoti.
Map maker : MAGINI, G.A..
Date : Venice, 1598.
Size : 7.7 x 10.9 inches. / 19.5 x 27.6 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :The first edition of Leonardo Cernoti's Italian translation of Ptolemy's Geografia based on the 1596 Latin edition of Magini published by G. B. & G. Galignani in 1597-98.
The beautiful engraved maps are attributed to Girolamo Porro and have been also used in Magini's translation of 1596.

Illustrated with two engraved title vignettes, one full page and 63 half page engraved maps and several woodcuts in the text. Whereof 27 Ptolemy maps and 37 'modern' map, including 4 world maps (one Ptolemy /Shirley 193, three modern /Shirley 194, 195, 196), 1 map of America (Burden 93), 32 European maps, 6 maps of Africa and 21 maps of Asia.

The beautiful maps have been engraved by G. Porro. Mentionable the three 'modern' world maps, first the full sheet map (Shirley 194) showing a classical late 16th century configuration of the world with a large "Terrae Australis" in the south, the Northwest passage with unusual shape of the North Pole and the bulky west coast of South America. Also the mythical islands in the Atlantic are present.
Shirley mentioned, 'it's the artist's credit that so much detail have been represented with such fineness and clarity...

This small Mercator-Porro map is a worthwhile collector's item, particularly as the larger Mercator world map is becoming increasingly scarce.'
The second modern world map is a reduced version of the 1570 Ortelius map, surrounded by six wind heads (Shirley 195).
Magini's mariner's map (Shirley 196) follows Gerard Mercator's large world map of 1569, with fanciful addition of chains of mountains across the souther continent.
Beside the world maps, four continental map of Asia, Africa, America and Europe are included, whereas the Africa map showing parts of Brazil and the Asia map also including elements of America.
There are three other maps with parts of America: 'Scandia, sive Regiones Septentrionales' showing the north Atlantic with parts of Labrador (Burden 98), 'Tartariae Imperium' with Japan, parts of Canada and California (Burden 95), and finally 'India Orientalis', the attractive map of south-east Asia with the west coast of North America.
