About this item
The story of maps marks the progress of the human race as men and women moved from purely local concerns to exploring the wider world about them. This book is full of wonderful pictorial maps which go right up to modern times, including the Mappa Mundi (c.1285) from Hereford Cathedral, a medieval European map of the world with Jerusalem at its centre, and the Tempus Orbis Terrarum, created in Antwerp by Abraham Ortelius for what is recognized as the first modern atlas.
