Detailed Product Description
London, New Holland Publishers Ltd, 1993. 669 pp, Thick Folio Size 10'' x 13'' x 2'' thick hardcover with a dust jacket. Contains hundreds of reproductions of maps, 18 colored plates, ca. 450 b/w plates, chronological listing & rarity index, chronological list lost or apocryphal world maps, index lesser known map-makers, table of life spans of main cartographers, chronology of discovery, list & index plates, index. Condition is Fine.

If you love maps, especially old maps, this classic ''cartobibliography'' is a treasure chest of information about the great maps of the world during the golden era of exploration. From the time of Columbus and Magellan to the discovery and mapping of the middle of America by Jolliet and Marquette, it is amazing to see the false starts and dead ends, and the final triumphs, that started knitting the world together as we now know it. 

This book weighs over ten pounds, so it needs a table to rest on when reading. We see copies being offered on the internet from $500 to $1000+, but we want to find a home for it this year, so we are making the price very reasonable.

Extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail or International Mail.
