Celebrating The Naming Of America At St. Die

I don’t have time to write more comments on this article because I’m a brand new dad and need to focus on that for a bit. But please feel free to read the article and make your own comments.

CELEBRATING THE NAMING OF AMERICA AT ST. DIE: Four Hundredth Anniversary of the Death of Mathias Ringmann, Who First Suggested the Name of This Continent in His “Introductio Cosmographiae.” (PDF)

From June 4, 1911

One response to “Celebrating The Naming Of America At St. Die”

  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.
