Product Description


'In this book, his first, Matthew McLean demonstrates great depth of research, a mind capable of lateral thinking and the ability to capture the interest of his reader... this book delivers a well researched examination of the context and creation of Sebastian Munster's Cosmographia.' Rare Books Newsletter '...McLean has achieve a Herculean task in analysing one of the greatest publishing enterprises of the sixteenth century.' The Library '... a thoughtful and probing work, full of interesting asides and arresting turns of phrase...' Bulletin of the German Historical Institute 'To sum up, this is a major study of one of the most outstanding works of Renaissance Europe that should be read by historians of science and technology, and by all those interested in the culture of this exciting time.' Metascience 'The reader of McLean's work will certainly feel his knowledge and understanding of early modern humanist scholarship enhanced; it is a worthy contribution to what is surely one of the most intellectually stimulating and attractively produced series on the market.'

2.0 out of 5 stars not as expected 18 Oct. 2011
By Neannalina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was expecting more of the actual Cosmograph of Sebastian Munster. Not Mr. McLean's complete rendition of Munster's book. There are some pics from Munster's original, but nothing else. I did not think the description of this book was correct. I feel like I have received the wrong book.
