Bernardus Sylvanus (fl 1465-1511,) or Bernardo Silvani, was an Italian scholar and printer born in the 1460s in Eboli in southern Italy. He is thought to have lived in Naples in 1490, and to have studied Ptolemy there. In 1511 - by this time, in Venice - he published a single edition of Ptolemy's Geographia, the first to be printed in two colors, and the first Italian Ptolemy to be produced using woodblocks. There are no known works by Sylvanus after this one.
