Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the crude maps of ancient Babylon to the satellite-fueled precision of Google Maps, cartography has been both a record of dreams and of discoveries. The Men Who Mapped the World is a beautifully illustrated and highly informative journey through these discoveries and dreams. Maps have played midwife to empires, helped win wars, and encouraged our species to venture beyond boundaries of space and time. Now that inspiring history is literally hands-on with 20 pull-out facsimiles of significant maps from the archives of the Royal Geographical Society!
