Here, gathered from five centuries of exploration, are over 200 maps of oceans and continents, mountains and forests, cities and shires. Presented in chronological order, these maps record the adventures and discoveries of explorers, merchants and travelers.

A collection of 120 faithfully reproduced antique maps in a sumptuous supersize format. The maps chart five centuries of exploration tracing the discovery of our world as science, legend, politics and art are blended together in the art of cartography. Full colour.
