A reproduction of a page from a book printed at the office of Erhart Ratdolt in Venice in 1478, Pomponii Melle Cosographie de situ orbis liber primis.

The German caption in the 1878 book containing this reproduction says:

Titeleinfassung aus Erhart Ratdolt’s Offizin in Venedig. Sie schmückt den Titel zur zweiten Ausgabe des Pomponius Mela dieses Druckers vom Jahre 1478. Diese, sowie die vorgehenden Verzierungen halten wir für Holzschnitt. Ein­zelne Brüche in den Leisten, in der Art, wie dieselben nur an Holzstöcken zu geschen pflegen, veranlassen uns dazu. In Originalgrösse.
