Beautiful, fascinating and accessible 17 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is excellent for those who have a general interest in cartography and/or the middle ages, or for those who want to proceed further into a serious study of medieval maps. It contains beautiful photographs of the key maps of the period. These are supported by explanations of each, plus sufficient information regarding the theories surrounding medieval mapmaking, without going into so much detail that it bores the general reader. It covers world maps before 1400, portolan maps before 1400, and maps of regions and local maps. Highly recommended for those who are interested in maps and the medieval period. If you want to go into further serious study of medieval maps, try "Mapping Time and Space" or "The History of Cartography Vol. 1".
