Product Highlights
Ruysch 1508 Map
Item#: X NGC 041893a

One of the first maps of the new world, Johannes Ruysch made this map, using a polar projection, which includes an extensive view of South America, islands of the West Indies, and a portion of North America. The World Map from Ruysch appeared for the first time among the Tabulae Novae in some copies of the 1507 Rome edition of Ptolemys Geography. Ruyschs map illustrates a number of significant geographic features more correctly than before, especially along the easterly sea route to the Orient which was of prime importance to early sixteenth-century Europeans. An incredible historical piece.

The 1893 Ruysch map, originally published in 1508, features:
• One of the first known views of the new world
• Views of South America, islands of the West Indies, and a portion of North America
• The exciting new world discoveries of the late fifteenth century
• Polar projection that acknowledges the belief that the northern passage was yet to be discovered
• One of the most detailed maps of India at the time

Coverage Area: Portion of North America, South America, West Indies, Africa, Atlantic Ocean, India
