Claudii Ptolemaei Geographiae codex Vrbinas Graecus 82
Probably a 12th century manuscript of 111 leaves (an earlier pagination not including the blank guard leaf ("vorsteckblatt") enumerates 110 leaves) Written in double columns on both sides of leaf. In the manuscript (Urbinas 82) the map of the world is inserted in book 7, and the 26 maps of Europe, Asia and Africa are with book 8; in the facsimile, the maps form a separate volume. The maps are produced in the exact size of the original; the text on a slightly reduced scale.
