By: Peter Whitfield
136 pages, Col and b/w illus, maps
This superbly illustrated book traces the history of charts not as technical documents but as eloquent witnesses to the discovery of the world beyond Europe, and to man's evolving knowledge of the oceans. Here Peter Whitfield presents some of the riches of Europe's chart tradition, together with an absorbing narrative summarising the vital role of sea-power in European history.
