List No 10155.002
Note One of seventeen charts in Savigny's book "Tableaux Accomplis de Tous les Arts Liberaux" published in Paris in 1587. Ruderman: "De Savigny's map of the world is intended to illustrate his model of learning, identifying the various critical learning disciplines--Grammar, Rhetoric, Dialectic, Geometry, Math, Optics, Music, Cosmography, Astrology, Physics, Medicine, Ethics, Jurisprudence, History and Theology., utilizing what Savigny describes as a logic 'tree." His map of the world follows Belleforest's oval projection of 1575, which was in turn based upon the first edition of Ortelius' seminal atlas map of the world, which first appeared in 1570. It appeared in Savigny’s Tableaux Accomplis De Tous Les Arts Liberaux, which supplied descriptions of grammar, rhetoric, dialectics, geometry and others disciplines with similar “logic trees,” in an attempt to systematically classify all knowledge. The book is said to have strongly influenced Francis Bacon and stands at the head of a tradition that was to continue through John Ray, Carl Linnaeus and Diderot's encyclopedia. The accompanying sheet of text provides a lengthy explanation of the map and logic tree of Geography. The work was widely used and respected and was so influential that there was a number of contemporary manuscript copies made in the 17th Century, quite possibly as a means of more closely studying and considering the text and logic trees."
