Medieval geography

13 December, 2013

You may have heard of Giovanni Boccaccio as the author of The Decameron. However this Italian author and poet also wrote De montibus, silvis, fontibus..., a little known dictionary of the mountains, forests, rivers, etc. of the world in his time. Boccaccio lived from 1313 to 1375 and produced a number of works, many of which are held in our Rare Books collection.

We are pleased to make a pdf copy of De montibus, silvis, fontibus available for scholarly research.

Please, don't forget to ask if you want to use the images. High resolution TIFFs are available for reproduction.
