by Buisseret, David (editor)

Condition: As New/As New

Chicago: Univ. of Chicago Press, 1992. Large 8vo., 189pp including index. This is a scholarly and readable volume based on the 1985 Kenneth Nebenzahl, Jr. Lectures in the History of Cartography, given at the Newberry Library. There is detailed referencing, and the volume looks at the political uses of cartography from 1400 to 1700 (actually some detail goes a bit later). Much of the history coincides with the development of the European nation-states, and chapters relate to Italy, England, the Spanish and Austrian Habsburgs, France and Poland. This is a nice edition to any library dealing with the history of cartography.. Cloth. As New/As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
