"The History of Cartography … is the most ambitious overview of map making ever undertaken …. People come to know the world the way they come to map it-through their perceptions of how its elements are connected and of how they should move among them. This is precisely what the series is attempting by situating the map at the heart of cultural life and revealing its relationship to society, science, and religion…. It is trying to define a new set of relationships between maps and the physical world that involve more than geometric correspondence. It is in essence a new map of human attempts to chart the world" (New York Times review). (Inventory #: 17705)
