Flanders (Vlaanderen) - Brabant - Holland, by Girolamo Ruscelli. 1562

Girolamo Ruscelli (1504 (1518?) -1566)

Girolamo Ruscelli was an Italian mathematician and cartographer active in Venice during the early 16th century. He was also an alchemist, writing pseudonymously as Alessio Piemontese.
He published a translation of the Geografia of Ptolemy, printed in Venice by Vincenzo Valgrisi in 1561. It was a quarto edition with Ptolemaic and modern maps. The engravers may have been the brothers Giulio and Livio Sanuto. Among the 69 copperplate maps were 40 based on maps by Giacomo Gastaldi. The maps were re-issued in 1562, 1564, 1574 and 1598.
