Ptolemy's Geography, recovered from Constantinople in 1400, was first printed with maps in 1477. It was immensely important in presenting a concept of the world which the Great Discoveries tested and updated. Subsequent editions document increases in geographical knowledge; this is from the 1513 Waldseemuller edition.
