Pelagios Project: Portolano. Egerton MS 2855



This dataset comprises 7 images from a Portolano produced in 1473 by Grazioso Benincasa. The digitisation was sponsored by A. W. Mellon Foundation through the Pelagios Project. Update – 9/3/2018: Please note that there were technical issues with this dataset. If you downloaded before 9/3/2018, please replace with this repaired version. Due to UK copyright law they are technically in copyright until 2039. However, given the age of the manuscripts and their place of production the Library believes it highly unlikely a public domain release will offend anyone; more information can be found at:
