Would have liked a wider survey,
This review is from: Map of a Nation: A Biography of the Ordnance Survey (Hardcover)
I agree with the view that this is a (no doubt precociously shrewd) cashing in on a PhD thesis. The author really should have brought this history of the Ordnance Survey up to date with recent developments in map-making. I also found the links to Enlightenment thought and poetry inspired by the British landscape too waffly.
