The Cartographer's Coffee Table Book

This is the book that showcases 300 maps from all periods of human mapmaking history around the world. The book spans 2,600 years of cartographic exploration and documentation—from the Babylonian World Map from 600 B.C. to Minard’s 1869 infographic of Napoleon’s advance and retreat from Moscow to a probe data-generated geological map of Mars from 2014. Selected by an international panel of curators, academics, and collectors, the maps include the greatest names in cartography: James Cook, Gerard Mercator, and Phyllis Pearsall. Indigenous maps, such as a stick chart map of the Marshall Islands, are also represented. Hardcover. 351 pages. 1 13/4" H x 10" W x 4 1/2" D. (5 1/4 lbs.)
