A sumptuously illustrated account of how maps reflected the developments of the world. This is a study of civilisations and how maps kept pace with that and represented those ever evolving changes.This is more than just a book of how maps came to be.

I picked this up in a book shop and loved it. Anyone with a passion for cartography will want to have this on their shelf. I didn't fancy spending the hefty £40 price tag so I looked on Amazon and got it for £10. Lots and lots of full colour maps, and plenty of good discussion about the maps and their makers. Some discussion of the controversial nature of some of the maps, such as how they appear to show coastlines that the people of the time should have known nothing about, but mostly just a look at how cartography has been used through the ages and throughout the world.
