Geography Atlas Pomponius Mela De Situ Orbis Illuminated Manuscript Binding
(Basileae : Heinrich Petri, 1557.) - 1557 Geography Atlas Pomponius Mela De Situ Orbis Illuminated Manuscript Binding Extremely RARE Edition! Joachim Vadianus Letter Pomponius Mela, who wrote around AD 43, was the earliest Roman geographer. He was born in Tingentera (now Algeciras) and died c. AD 45. His short work (De situ orbis libri III.) occupies less than one hundred pages of ordinary print. It is laconic in style and deficient in method, but of pure Latinity, and occasionally relieved by pleasing word-pictures. Except for the geographical parts of Pliny’s Historia naturalis (where Mela is cited as an important authority) the De situ orbis is the only formal treatise on the subject in Classical Latin. We do not find another example of the 1557 edition of this book for sale anywhere else worldwide!
