[ocr errors]

Sm. folio, with folding map; a sound copy in the original vellum ; 1600


Although the Arabic original was written about the year 1515, the information it conveys represents for the most part a somewhat earlier period. It gives us the historical geography of Africa as known to educated Granadan and Moorish Mohammedans about the year 1490.

The 34 leaves of which this edition consists bear signatures, thus: A and B in four, C 8 leaves (of which the double leaf containing the so-called Mappemonde, forms two); D 4, E 6, and F 8.-The particular value of the edition of 1509 lies in the circumstance that it was the first to reveal the name of the compiler and editor of this famous geographical work-the Cosmographic Introductio. In the editions of 1507 his personality had been concealed under the vague appellation of the Gymnasium Vosagense. But now he claimed his rights as author, and turned the we into the I, besides making some other small modifications. This copy is bound up with CARBEN (Victor) de Vita et Moribus Iudæorum.
