From the blurb: "From Bishop Isidore's simplistic T-O design for a world map, through the elaborately decorated manuscript maps and printed maps of the 17th and 18th centuries which are works of art in themselves, to scientific maps showing the ocean floor, Peter Whitfield examines the history of world mapmaking through 70 outstanding individual examples, discussing each map and its maker in relation to their age and placing them within the context of the wider history of ideas. Drawing on the wide variety of maps held by The British Library and other major collections throughout the world, The Image of the World is superbly illustrated throughout in colour."
