Oronce Fine’s 16th century book, Sphaera Mundi, shows his prolific knowledge of early modern cosmography and practical mathematics from a theoretical perspective.  As a professor and active scholar, he helped to shape 16th century mathematical culture in academia and society.  Fine was also accomplished in the fields of astronomy, cartography, and gnomonics, the art of constructing and using sundials.
