Review

Arguably, Ý"Ptolemy's Geography"¨ has been the most lastingly influential of all works in the earth sciences. . . . This is a most useful volume, destined to be a primary source for classical scholars as well as for historians of science. -- William A.S. Sarjeant "Earth Sciences History"

A superlative new translation. . . . In Berggren and Jones [Ptolemy] has, at long last, found his ideal exponents.--Peter Green "London Review of Books "

By allowing us to hear in English the voice of one who was both the chief cartographer of the Greek world and the inspiration for the fifteenth-century cartographic revolution, Berggren and Jones have masterfully met a long-felt need.--Robert W. Karrow, Jr. "Technology and Culture "

Until now there has been no reliable translation of the "Geography" in English. Berggren and Jones have triumphantly filled that lack for the crucial portion of the work, the portion in which Ptolemy speaks as scientific geographer.--Lionel Casson "Classical Bulletin "

From the Back Cover

"The translation is exemplary, surely the best in any language. It supersedes all previous translations and corrects all editions. The authors have done a splendid job in every way and have produced a work that will be useful for the duration of our lives and probably much longer."--Noel Swerdlow, University of Chicago and author of The Babylonian Theory of the Planets

"Berggren and Jones have made a difficult, detailed and challenging text far more accessible and have produced a work that will be the standard for many years to come. They have done a wonderful service to the study of a crucial text by one of the most important figures in the history of science. A pleasure to read."--Liba Taub, Cambridge University
