About this Item

Illustrated with ten plates showing the original manuscript, small quarto, pp 50, paperback, rather used and creased throughout. [The Ravenna Cosmography is a list of place-names covering the world from India to Ireland, compiled by an anonymous cleric in Ravenna around AD 700. Textual evidence indicates that the author frequently used maps as his source. The most recent critical edition of the three manuscripts is that of Joseph Schnetz in 1942. The surviving texts are quite challenging. The three manuscript copies are distanced from the autograph (original manuscript) by three or four generations. As a result, the copies are plagued by errors of spelling, word division, omission, and even errors of hearing. (The text was apparently dictated at one point.)]. Bookseller Inventory # 009880
