Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Developed in association with the National Maritime Museum

Book News Annotation:

This attractively illustrated atlas shows how humankind's thirst for knowledge and increasing ability to act on ambition created an age of adventure and discovery across uncharted seas. Organized chronologically, coverage includes biographies of the famous navigators of the day, the voyages they undertook, and the ships they sailed; about 200 color illustrations; detailed color maps charting the gradual discovery of new lands; and a continuous timeline of dates and key events. Konstam has been Curator of Arms and Armor at the Tower of London and Chief Curator of the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West, Florida.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

From the beginning of time, humankind has been fascinated with areas of the world and historical periods beyond our immediate experience. The Historical Atlas series offers a highly visual and compelling presentation of the history and development of different lands and empires throughout the world and across time. Each volume pairs lively "you are there" accounts with a superb combination of detailed maps, stunning photographs and illustrations, profiles of key figures, timelines, and much more to provide new and unique insights into the world's history.

From the sponsorship of early explorers by rival European powers to the creation of a new world empire in the Americas, the atlas is an exciting, comprehensive guide to the Great Age of Exploration.
