From: Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini geographicae enarrationis libri octo. Lyon, M. Servetus, 1541. (Karrow, 288/G.3)

The editor of this edition, Michael Villanovus (better known as Servetus), was tried for heresy in 1553. He was burned at the stake, and at Calvin's orders, many copies of Servetus's books, including this one, followed him into the flames.
