Isola Cuba Nova
Venice, 1561. No Binding. Near Fine. 7 ½ x 9 ¾ inches. Small mend at centerfold outside printed area, else excellent condition. Very early map of Cuba, Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and part of Hispaniola, from Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's geography. The larger scale, stippled ocean, delicate engraving and precise lettering all distinguish this Ruscelli edition of the map from its source, the rare 1548 Gastaldi map of the same title. The content of Ruscelli's map is predominantly faithful to Gastaldi's, though it contains several alterations of place names, for example Gastaldi's IAMAYEA is corrected to IAMAYCA. Kapp, Capt. Kit S., in MCC #24 The Printed Maps of Jamaica, #2
