Hi all,

I desperately looking for an opportunity to buy a reproduction or facsimile or at least high quality digital copy of Ptolemy's Cosmographia (Geographia Magna).

So far I found only a reference to the Greek e-shop, which offers on its website the Vatopedion Codex, but they do not communicate with me.

I need the reproduction for the purposes of education. I lead the course of cartometry at university and want to make my students to do some measurements using antient maps, so the most important to me is the content (maps and the gazeteer), not the artistic design, regardless the particular manuscript or edition, or the language (Latin, Greek). I would not mind even the second-hand publication.

Any reference or recommendation will be very welcome. Thanks in advance...

Have you seen the copy from the National Digital Library of Poland?

Cosmographia Claudii Ptolomaei Alexandrini

Is that what you are looking for?
