Summary expansion
Sabin goes on to quote Henry Stevens as saying that Lilio's geography contains "all the knowledge and all the ignorance respecting our globe that could be collected from the ancients, as well as mediaeval writers, so as to start fair with the new light to be let in by Columbus. It is a sort of alphabetical dictionary of geography, with a good index. The works of Lilius are in Ortelius's famous list of geographical authorities published in 1570."
