C1547 (1806) Il Mappamondo di Fra Mauro Camaldolese Descritto ed Illustrato Da D. Placido Zurla dello Stess' Ordine
The first substantial study and printing of Fra Mauro's famous medieval Mappa Mundi. Fra Mauro's map is considered the greatest memorial of medieval cartography and was produced between 1457 and 1459. It is a circular planisphere drawn on parchment, oriented to the south, and mounted on a wooden stretcher frame around 2m in diameter.  It includes Asia, the Indian Ocean, Africa, Europe, and the Atlantic, and it took several years to complete.

C1532 (1540) Nova, et Integra Universi Orbis Descriptio.
Oronce Fine's famous double cordiform map of the world is acknowledged as being one of the most striking and influential world maps published in the c.16th.
