I have added a reference to one of the treasures kept in The European Library. If you believe this is a wrong move, please explain me why. Thanks! Trust me - I will remove it myself if necessary. Fleurstigter 10:29, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Date of redrawn map?

This edit established the usage of the page as BCE/CE. Kindly maintain it consistently, pending a new consensus. Better still, just omit the term. Nothing involved is BC, so there's no need to bring in the terms. — LlywelynII 05:58, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
- Is this article about this single image? Move it to "Totius Orbis Habitabilis Brevis Descriptio" (its title), "A Brief Description of the Entire Habitable World" (its translated title), or Harleian MS 7182 (its work) or Harley MS 7182 (a variant name of its work).
- Is this article about the view of the world presented by Ptolemy's work in all its forms? Move it to Ptolemaic projection or Ptolemaic map projections.
- Is this article about Ptolemy's geographic knowledge and locations? Merge its content with the article on Ptolemy's Geography.
- Alternatively, move it to Geography (Jacobus Angelus) and start an article there on his specific surviving MSS of Ptolemy (including both Harleian MS 7182 and Harleian MS 7195).
Regardless, this page shouldn't exist. This is no "Ptolemaic world map": there are only (various) mediaeval maps reconstructed from Ptolemy's rediscovered text, for which we have a separate article. — LlywelynII 06:36, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
