Product Description

Review

"This carefully edited and translated medieval work is a must-have item in any collection of research materials on the history of cartography." Cyrus Alai in IMCoS Journal (International Map Collectors' Society) 139 (2014), 59-60. "...an epic piece of scholarship that will enable western scholars to reassess their understanding of medieval Islamic cosmology and mapmaking and its relation to the Christian tradition." Jerry Brotton in History Today 64.3 (2014), p. 59.
