Atlas of Columbus and the Great Discoveries
Renowned map historian Nebenzahl (fellow, Royal Geographical Society) traces not only the discoveries, but also the progress of mapping itself in this awesome collection of reproductions, filmed directly from original manuscripts, woodcuts and engravings. Most of the 50 maps are double page spreads, many with section enlargements revealing the wealth of detail. The text is authoritative and interesting, the entire project an outstanding achievement. 11x14". Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
