"Full of charming stories and cartographic detail, Chet Van Duzer's book is an entertaining and rewarding book for general readers and a well-researched reference for scholars."--Alessandro Scafi "Times Literary Supplement " "[An] authoritative, wide-ranging study. . . . Sumptuously produced. . . . The author is an encyclopedic scholar of historical cartography, with a magisterial command of comparative knowledge and scrupulous attentiveness to detail."--Marina Warner "New York Review of Books " "Lavish. . . . The sea monsters depicted throughout Van Duzer's beautifully illustrated British Library volume strike absolute wonder in the reader today, and the author provides valuable insight into what medieval and Renaissance viewers must have made of these sinewy, silly, horned, fanged, and fearsome creatures. . . . Van Duzer reminds scholars that it sometimes helps to let the eye wander to the margins, to get a different historical perspective of medieval perspectives of their surrounding seas. This critical analysis of a hitherto ignored cartographic trope adds much-needed depth to our understanding of medieval and later perceptions of the sea and its mysterious creatures."--Vicki Ellen Szabo, Western Carolina University "Nautical Research Journal " "An in-depth dissection of ancient maps and sea beasts from days past."--Andrew Belonsky "Out " Full of charming stories and cartographic detail, Chet Van Duzer s book is an entertaining and rewarding book for general readers and a well-researched reference for scholars. --Alessandro Scafi "Times Literary Supplement "" [An] authoritative, wide-ranging study. . . .

Reseña del editor:

The sea monsters on medieval and Renaissance maps, whether swimming vigorously, gambolling amid the waves, attacking ships, or simply displaying themselves for our appreciation, are one of the most visually engaging elements on these maps, and yet they have never been carefully studied. The subject is important not only in the history of cartography, art, and zoological illustration, but also in the history of the geography of the 'marvellous' and of western conceptions of the ocean. Moreover, the sea monsters depicted on maps can supply important insights into the sources, influences, and methods of the cartographers who drew or painted them. In this highly-illustrated book the author analyzes the most important examples of sea monsters on medieval and Renaissance maps produced in Europe, beginning with the earliest mappaemundi on which they appear in the tenth century and continuing to the end of the sixteenth century.
