Product description

The Agile Rabbit Book of Historical and Curious Maps contains a collection of amazing and beautifully-made maps that have been chosen for their visual impact and rarity. The selection is of great diversity in appearance and meaning; there are comparative overviews of the length of rivers and the height of mountains, nautical charts, medieval city plans, and maps from pre-historical times. Also included are images of how Europeans perceived the world to look like many centuries ago, highly detailed bird's-eye maps from Japan, and archaic, captivating charts made by Native Americans and Australian Aboriginals. Furthermore, there are a number of very extraordinary maps with a double meaning.
