Review:

'... maps of mesmerising beauty ... a fine new book' Independent on Sunday 'Nebenzahl's achievement ... is to make accessible and arresting an esoteric field.' World of Interiors 'beautiful ... Nebenzahl's commentary on the maps, which presuppose no expert knowledge of cartography, [...] is clear and helpful' The Art Newspaper 'It's been a big year for the Silk Road, with the British Library's majestic exhibition ably and plentifully supported by book publishers right across the board ... But no matter how good these books have been, it's fair to say that none of them have pulled out the stops quite so effectively as ... Mapping the Silk Road and Beyond - a truly fascinating account. ... a balanced and authoritative - as well as visually stunning - cartographical anthology. The pleasure of seeing such a distinguished collection of maps brought together in in one volume is greatly enhanced by the production values of the book itself. Apart from the fact it's beautifully printed on stout matt paper with absolutely no show-through, the printer seems to have got the colours spot-on, which is a laudable achievement in a book that sells for less than GBP30.' Geographical

Review:

Una collezione senza precedenti di mappe sulle pionieristiche esplorazioni di James Cook, Sir Francis Drake, Magellano e Zheng He. Il volume documenta la scoperta del continente asiatico e delle sue vie di commercio, tra cui la Via della Seta. Il volume ripercorre 2000 anni di storia della cartografia.

Descripción Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 290 x 250 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Today the world is focusing unprecedented attention on Asia and the Middle East - rediscovering a cultural, political, and geographical landscape that has fascinated and frustrated Westerners since the time of Alexander the Great. Mapping the Silk Road and Beyond traces the history of the European age of exploration and its lasting effects on these regions through an extensive series of beautifully rendered and imaginative maps drawn by explorers, merchants, and colonial administrators of the time. The book focuses on both maritime exploration and overland discovery via the ancient Silk Road: a network of trading posts that encompassed China, Tibet, Pakistan, India, Kurdistan, Iraq, Ethiopia, Eritrea, and dozens of other places known in ancient times by fabled names, including Abyssinia, Malacca, Macassar, Siam, and Cathay. The maps provide detailed visual keys to the fascinating history of Asia and the Middle East: altogether they illuminate a cast of historical figures ranging from great leaders (the Queen of Sheba, Mohammed the prophet, King Charles V) to legendary explorers (Marco Polo, Columbus, Magellan, Sir Francis Drake, Capt. James Cook) and influential cartographers. Mapping the Silk Road and Beyond depicts over eighty maps organized in clear chronology - from Alexander the Great s map of the world, first created in 323 BC and reproduced in a sixteenth-century atlas, to maps from the nineteenth century by French and Dutch explorers that detail the growing interaction between Europeans and Eastern cultures. These maps represent the finest examples in existence in museums, libraries, and archives around the world, chosen because they depict the most important milestones in the mapping of Asia.
