About this book

Language: German

Maps have accompanied the history of mankind for millennia. They give testimony of how our ancestors saw their environment, and by which religious or philosophical ideas they were guided, which grotesque mistakes they made at times and how the earth slowly unveiled itself before them. Die Vermessung der Erde,  on the basis of the most important printed testimonies of their time, tells the exciting global history of cartography, and tells the history and stories of the greatest mapmakers, their clients, and the great explorers.

Summary in German:
Karten begleiten die Geschichte der Menschheit seit Jahrtausenden. Sie geben Zeugnis, wie unsere Ahnen ihre Umwelt sahen, von welchen religiösen oder philosophischen Vorstellungen sie sich leiten ließen, welchen grotesken Irrtümern sie manchmal unterlagen und wie sich vor ihnen die Erde langsam entschleierte. Die Vermessung der Erde zeichnet anhand der bedeutendsten Druckzeugnisse ihrer Zeit weltweit die spannende Geschichte der Kartografie nach und erzählt die Geschichte und Geschichten der bedeutendsten Kartenmacher, ihrer Auftraggeber und der großen Entdecker.
