    First enlarged edition with the addition of the Libellus de locorum describendorum ratione, & de eorum distantiis inveniendis of Gemma Frisius, in which Frisius first described the principle of triangulation for use in surveying. The Cosmographia of Petrus Apianus was one of the most popular books of the century. With material derived from the Luculentissima quaedam terrae totius descriptio of Johann Schöner (Nuremberg, 1515), Apianus gave vivid descriptions of the newly discovered lands in the New World.
