As New England's preeminent city, Boston has had a long and rich history, one that has been mirrored in the region's maps. In dozens of illustrations and photos, this panoramic survey takes stock of how Boston has been depicted in maps across four centuries, including fanciful drawings of the New World, 18th-century paintings of the city, an incredibly detailed 1896 navigation chart, and a NASA infrared photo. The text traces the cultural, political, and artistic history of the area, noting the contributions of Cotton Mather, John Adams, Phyllis Wheatley, John Singleton Copley, and Frederick Law Olmsted.
