Overview and metadata sections

Ruland, Harold Laurence, 1906-1961.

Harold Laurence Ruland (1906-1961) was an American educator and historian.

The collection consists of correspondence, articles, manuscript notes, microfilm, photographic reproductions, bibliographies, card files, and tables of Ruland relating to his study of Sebastian Munster (1489-1552) and the history of cosmography and early cartography. Most of the papers pertain to Munster's work, the Cosmographia (1544), including Ruland's article "A Survey of the Double-Page Maps in Thirty-Five Editions of the Cosmographia Universalis, 1544-1628 of Sebastian Munster, and in His Editions of Ptolemy's Geographia; 1540-1552" (1957); tables and lists concerning various editions of the Cosmosgraphia; photocopies of maps; and other articles and publications.
