Summary

From beautifully engraved sixteenth-century Dutch maps to sinister Nazi maps, this stunning compendium features some of the most famous cartography ever created. Stretching back to when explorers feared dropping off the “edge of the world,” these 65 examples include Lewis and Clark’s charting of the American West, the British mapping of India and Australia, and maps that divided up continents among conquerors, marked a country’s geology, or laid out military campaigns. There are even some “fantasy maps,” including one from Lord of the Rings! Organized chronologically, the collection shows the evolution of map-making from all corners of the globe.
