Map of part of the Danube showing section in Bulgaria, with Nicopoli, etc. Prepared by Count Luigi Ferdinando Marsili (1658 - 1730) who was an Italian scholar and eminent natural scientist. Published in "Danubius Pannonico-Mysicus".
Born in Bologna, he was a member of an ancient patrician family and was educated in accordance with his noble social rank. He supplemented his reading by studying mathematics, anatomy, and natural history helped by the best Bolognese tutors and enhanced by his personal observations. After a course of scientific studies in his native city he travelled throughout Asia Minor collecting data on the Ottoman Empire's military organisation, as well as on its natural history.

His major work on the Danube was published, after twenty years of delay, in 1726 in Amsterdam and The Hague. The maps of the work were published as an atlas in 1744. His treatise of oceans, published in 1725, renders Marsigli to be considered the founding father of modern oceanography.
