Girolamo Ruscelli: "TAVOLA NVOVA DI PRVSSIA ET DI LIVONIA," Venice, in versions from his own version of Ptolemy's "Geographia." The first two Ruscelli editions were published 1561 and 1562 by V. Valgrisi.  
The third edition was published by G. Ziletti in 1564. Maps of the first five editions of Ruscelli were printed from the same copper plates of Valgrisi, which were based on the maps of Jacopo Gastaldi which
appeared in Mattioli's 1548 translation of Ptolemy's Geographia. Ruscelli enlarged the maps and included several additions. The sixth edition of Ruscelli's translation of Ptolemy's "Geografia" was edited and
extended by Giuseppe Rosaccio, and published by the heirs of M. Sessa in 1598 and 1599. The Valgrisi copper plates of the earlier Ruscelli editions were revised by Rosaccio and extended by five new plates. Most of
the Ptolemaic and modern maps were enhanced by ships, sea monsters, fishes, trees and additional place names. Map platemark 194 x 265 mm / 7.6 x 10.4 inches.

1561 Girolamo Ruscelli: "POLONIA ET HVNGARIA
NVOVA  TAVOLA," Venice, 10  x 7 inches. The first
edition of Ruscelli's atlas was an expanded version of
Gastaldi's 1548 atlas. Ruscelli and Gastaldi's maps were
engraved on copper, a turning point in the history of
cartography. From that point on, the majority of
cartographic works used this medium. Harder than
wood, it gave the engraver the ability to render more
detail. The 1st edition was in Latin, all later editions
were translated into Italian. See the 1598-99 map
revised by Giuseppe Rosaccio.

1562 Giacomo Gastaldi: "Il Disegno
de Geografia Moderna del Regno di
Polonia, e Parte del Ducado di
Moscovia, con parte della Scandia , e
parte de Suevia, con molte Regioni,
in quelli. . . MDLXII . . ." Venice, 21 x
30.5 inches (if joined). The first
edition of Gastaldi's 2-sheet map of
the Kingdom of Poland, generally
recognized as the earliest map to
focus on Poland. Derived from
Mercator's 1554 map of Europe, the
map was also likely influenced by
the maps of Bernard Wapowski
(1526) and Grodeckis published in
1548, now lost, but copied by
Ortelius in 1570.  Paolo Forlani
issued a subsequent edition of
Gastadi's 2 sheet map in 1568.
