Sixth Edition of the Latin Translation by Marsilio Ficino, the first to contain the careful revisions of distinguished Protestant theologian Simon Grynaeus [1493-1541]. Grynaeus, a friend of Melanchthon and Erasmus, and professor of Greek at Heidelberg (1523) and Basel (1536), was also the editor of the second Greek edition of Plato, published at Basel in 1534. Ficino’s translation, begun in 1466 and first published in 1484-85, made his name famous in the history of scholarship and has been called "the best translation of that author Italy can boast." (Encyc. Britan., 11th Edn.) The manuscripts on which he worked were supplied by his patron Cosimo de’ Medici and by Americo Benci. While the translation was in progress, Ficino periodically submitted its pages for discussion and revision to Angelo Poliziano, Christoforo Landino, Demetrios Chalchondylas, and other fellow scholars who were members of the Platonic Academy. "Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499) was the most influential representative of Renaissance Platonism.

Fine, Oronce (1494-1555)
Paris: Galliot Du Pré, 1532. THE MOST SPECTACULAR FRENCH RENAISSANCE DOUBLE-CORDIFORM MAP OF THE WORLD, DESIGNED BY A MATHAMATICAL GENIUS Woodcut: 13" x 16 7/8" References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 64; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 66; R. V. Tooley, Maps and Map-makers (New York, reprint 1990), 38. Oronce Finé, the most eminent French cartographer of the sixteenth century, is celebrated for having employed a distinctive and influential cordiform (or heart-shaped) projection for world maps. This striking example, the first double-cordiform map ever published, was subsequently much imitated. Drawn in 1531, it first appeared in the 1532 Paris edition of Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus's Novus orbis regionum, a collection of travel accounts that had also been published in Basel several months before. As a double-cordiform representation, it shows the world divided into separate hemispheres, north and south, each depicted in the form of a heart or cordum that mirrors the other, with the two meeting at a central point on the Equator. The left or northern cordum encompasses Asia, Europe, part of Africa and America, while the right includes those parts of Africa and the New World that lay south of the Equator as well as "Terra Australis," the southern continent that was then little more than speculative. Based on sophisticated geometric principles for reducing the spherical earth to a two-dimensional image, Finé's delineation of the world was much copied throughout the sixteenth century. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Munster, Sebastian (1488-1552), cartographer and Holbein, Hans, the Younger (1497-15430, Draftsman
Basel: Hervagius, 1532. THE FIRST WORLD MAPS TO DEPICT THE THEORIES OF NICOLAUS COPERNICUS Woodcut: 143/4" x 22" References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 65; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 67. While the Paris edition of Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus's 1532 Novus orbis regionum included Oronce Finé's double-cordiform map (see above, n. 9), the Basel edition of the same year included this very different cartographic treatment of the world on an oval projection. With the cartography ascribed to prominent cartographer Sebastian Münster and the execution to the celebrated German artist Hans Holbein the Younger, the map is particularly fine from an artistic standpoint, with sea monsters adorning the waves of the oceans, exotic animals and landscape views with curious classical architectural structures around the margins, along with less benign scenes depicting acts of cannibalism and animal sacrifice. These nightmarish fantasies of terrible creatures and terrifying customs in distant places surely reflect the flights of imagination that contemporary geographical discoveries inspired among western Europeans, and one might go so far as to say that Holbein inflected his rendering with a distinctly medieval sensibility. In another sense, however, the map was progressive, even groundbreaking, for it was one of the first world maps to reflect the Copernican theory of a heliocentric universe. Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), the Polish astronomer who famously argued that the earth orbited around th … [Click Below for Full Description]
