  1. It’s funny how the Waldseemüller map (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universalis_Cosmographia) is barely mentioned as an afterthought in this article, while the work that is focused on (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmographiae_Introductio) seems to have fallen into obscurity — including the view that this was authored by Ringmann.
