Description
A map enthusiast's dream, this beautifully illustrated book contains 15 removable facsimile maps that can be pored over at leisure, hung on a wall, or even mounted and framed, from Atlantic and Pacific maps in the 16th-century Portolan Atlas to a bird's-eye view of 1909 Los Angeles that unfolds to nearly 38 x 26 inches, and a Landsat image of the Holy Land. Beau Riffenburgh—also the author of Polar Exploration and Shackleton's Forgotten Expedition—guides readers on a journey through the 8,000-year history of cartography, which is essentially a history of the world and how its territories were discovered and explored.
