Combine 1 tbsp. chopped rosemary, the salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Peel potatoes and put in a bowl of water. Coat a large cast-iron skillet with 1 tbsp. oil. Using a mandoline or knife, cut half the potatoes into 1/8-in. slices and arrange them in tightly overlapping circles in skillet. Sprinkle with half of salt mixture. Repeat with remaining potatoes and salt mixture, making a second layer. Drizzle remaining 3 tbsp. oil over potatoes, shaking pan to distribute it well. Press potato cake with hands to compact.
