Book Description

7 Nov 2012
This lavishly illustrated history of the golden age of cartography, from the sixteenth through to the nineteenth centuries, explores not only the embellishments on maps but also what they reveal about the world in which they were created. Here there be monsters real and imagined; ships actual and archetypical; newly discovered flora such as corn and tobacco; fauna ranging from buffalo to unicorns; godlike beings and fantasy-like depictions of native peoples. The stunningly rendered images illuminate an entire world.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE MAPS!! 26 Jan 2014
By Louise Radanovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Beautiful, informative book. The forward by John Noble Wilford, whose "The Mapmakers" resides in my bookcase, is excellent. I have also recently read Simon Winchester's "The Map that Changed the World", so this lovely volume now triples my appreciation of cartographic history and art. Keep a magnifying glass handy to appreciate the tiny details.
