[Venice: circa 1574]. Copper engraved map. Second state with Italian text on verso. Neat lines 7 x 9.6 inches (18 x 24.4 cm); sheet 9 x 12 1/4 inches (23 x 32 cm). Trimmed to plate mark along the upper edge, the other margins wider, ink atlas marker "328" at lower right.

An important early map of the "New World", showing the east coast of North America. Based on Gastaldi's 1548 map, Ruscelli's map combines the discoveries from the voyages of Verrazano and Cartier. The Hudson and St. Lawrence rivers are here unnamed and shown connecting inland. Off Florida, Bermuda is named "La Bermuda." The map was first published in Ruscelli's translation of Ptolemy and again in the Italian edition as here. Burden The Mapping of North America 30.
