This book provides a survey of maps printed from copper plates or wod-blocks between the 15th and 18th centuries. The design of maps was controlled no less by the tools and processes used in engraving and printing than by the public for whom they were made and by the commercial channels through which they werd circulate. The 84 reproductions serve as a specimen book to illustrate the development of map-design and decoration. For the present edition a new bibliography has been provided.
