Title : Strabonis nobilissimi et doctissimi philosophi ac geographi Rervm geographicarum commentarij libris XVII contenti, Latini facti Gvilielmo Xylandro Augustano interprete. . ..
Map maker : STRABO..
Date : Basle, Henri Petri, 1571.
Size : 11.9 x 8.1 inches. / 30.1 x 20.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :A few marginal annotations (pp. 109-111), in a 19th c. hand. Latin translation with a commentary by Wilhelm Holtzmann, also called Guglielmus Xylander. (1532-1576), librarian and professor of Greek at Heidelberg. An active Greek scholar, Holtzmann also supplied Latin translations of a number of authors including Tryphiodorus (Basel, 1548), Dio Cassius (Basel, 1558), Marcus Aurelius (1559), Plutarch (Basel, 1561-1570). There is another edition of the present Strabo translation with the facing Greek published the same year (Adams, S-1907 - Graesse, VI, 505). This edition of Strabo contains 27 large maps (double page) and 6 smaller maps incorporated in the text (Euboea, Crete, Lesbos, Rhodes, Cyprus and Cephalonia). The large maps are engraved after models found in Ptolomy’s Geographia as established by Sebastien Münster (Basel, Henri Petri, 1540, see Phillips, 1914, 3388).

Ptolomy’s Geographia contained 48 maps and the work had a considerable influence (24 editions in 100 years).
In 1544, Sebastian Münster’s work entitled Cosmographia supplied additional information on cities, historical figures and local traditions and costumes (see M. McLean, The Cosmographia of Sebastian Münster: Describing the World in the Reformation, 2007). On Henricus Petri (1508-1579), printer in Basel, see Heckethorn, C.W. The Printers of Basel in the XVth - XVIth centuries, 1897, p. 154.
The first edition of Strabo’s Geography in the original Greek was published in Venice, Aldus, 1516. The first Latin translation was that of Guarino Veronese and Gregorio Tifernate in 1469 (Rome, Sweynheym and Pannartz, [1469]).
The present imprint (1571) is the first to give the corrected Latin translation of Wilhelm Holzmann or Guilielmus Xylander.
