About This Item

(Hoo: Grange Books, 2006) 1840139250. 162 x 146 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 255, incl. index; lavishly illustrated in full colour. Fine condition. "Maps, even those dating from centuries ago, constantly influence our daily lives. They are one of the things which are part of our daily environment. Throughout history, besides having a utilitarian function, every single map symbolizes the period of time in which it was created. ... While the map maker's vision might later prove to be inadequate, or even incorrect, the unique truth is that his map expresses a story that might not be revealed in any other way. It may well be said that each map maker has effectively traveled in his mind vicariously not only to the envisioned places, but also to the future." .
