Michael of Rhodes
In 1434, Michael of Rhodes began to compile a manuscript that would demonstrate his personal mastery of the art of navigation. The text contains Michael's service record, over 200 pages of commercial and calendrical computations, a beautifully illustrated section on astrology, some of the earliest surviving portolan aids to navigation, and the world's first known treatise on shipbuilding.
