Summary
"The third edition of Ruscelli's translation of Ptolemy, revised and corrected by Gio. Malombra, whose dedication is dated 'Il primo di Gennaio 1574.' With one exception, the 65 double-page copperplate maps, accompanied by descriptive text on the backs, are the same as those in two preceding editions, and in the Latin edition of 1562, having been printed from the same plates."--Wilberforce
