Die "Geographie" des Ptolemaios im Spiegel der griechischen Handschriften
[Ptolemy's "Geography" in the Mirror of the Greek Manuscripts]
Aims and Scope
The present volume taps into the heretofore scarcely leveraged potential offered by a codicological and paleographic approach to reconstruct the history of Ptolemy’s Geography. The author presents many of the work’s manuscripts for the first time, and also provides a number of illuminating insights about the history of the reception of Ptolemy’s Geography.
