<title> SUMMARY </title>The Fondazione Scienza e Tecnica of Florence has recently acquired a Santoni Model IV stereocartograph. This large instrument was used for producing topographical maps from stereoscopic aereal or terrestrial photographs. This type of stereocartograph had been proposed in 1943 by Ermenegildo Santoni (1896-1970), who invented and perfected several types of similar apparatus over a period of many years. The instrument, which is purely analogical and represents one of the last apparatus of this kind, is a masterpiece of precision mechanics. Today all these apparatus are completely superceded by computers and plotters.
