Title : Isola Cuba Nova..
Map maker : RUSCELLI, G..
Date : Venice, 1561.
Size : 7.3 x 9.6 inches. / 18.6 x 24.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Scarce FIRST edition of this map depicting the island of Cuba - one of the earliest separately published maps of Cuba. Also includes Jamaica and northwestern Hispaniola and the Cayman Islands. Based on the rare 1548 Gastaldi map.

The line across the lower part of the island represents the equator, and the numbers below the line indicate the degrees east of Ptolemy's prime meridian in the Canary Islands.
Girolamo Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geographia included newly engraved copperplates by Giulio and Livio Sanuto. The curious fact is that this map is one of two that were engraved on the same plate, printed and than separated for the book. This can be seen in the atlas by the fact that the plate mark of the map runs off the top of the page. In 1574 a new plate was used which lasted until the final edition of 1599.
Kapp, Capt. Kit S., in MCC #24 The Printed Maps of Jamaica, #2.
Condition : Mint condition. Italian text on verso with historiated Q.
