This edition translated by Jacobus Angelus and edited by Bernadus Sylvanus of Eboli.
The atlas is unique among Italian editions being printed from woodcuts, each map using two blocks; all place names are printed from type inserted in the block. Sylvanus amended Ptolemy’s maps to take account of modern discoveries and the cordiform map of the `modern’ world is the earliest of its kind, and only the second map in an edition to show America; it is the first western printed map to indicate Japan [Shirley 32].
