story about maps, 27 Jun. 2011
This is a very good book about the history of maps. it tells how maps where printed. how people looked at the world. also the people who made it. eventually he will explain the different countrys and the history of mapmaking in this country. So it isn't only about the UK. Italy, gemany the Netherlands and many more. So it is a must have for people who want to understand the story about maps. Even for people outside the UK
One of the last parts is about collecting, but I haven't read it that far.
For people who are only interested in the maps. it has some nice ones in the book, but your better of with an atlass like the Atlass Maior
