Historical Atlas of the North Pacific Ocean: Maps of Discovery and Scientific Exploration, 1500-2000by Derek Hayes
Synopses & Reviews
Map junkies rejoice! Derek Hayes, author of Historical Atlas of the Pacific Northwest, delivers another stunning atlas filled with stories of explorations and exquisite historical maps. Over five hundred years of maps depicting the North Pacific Ocean and the lands that border it — the United States, Canada, Alaska, Russia, Japan, Korea, and China — have been collected into this new atlas. From antique maps of the sixteenth century to modern satellite images, this volume covers all the major explorations, such as Magellan, Bering, Cook, and Vancouver; Perry's opening of Japan; and the U.S. North Pacific Exploring Expedition. It also includes modern maps that use the latest technology to show ocean currents, fault lines, and the seabed in astounding detail.
