Summary
"In scope, this book matches The History of Cartogmphy, vol. 1 (1987) edited by Brian Harley and David Woodward. Now, twenty-one years after the appearance of that work, classicists and medievalists from Europe and North America highlight, distill and reflect on the remarkably productive progress made since in many different areas of the study of maps. The interaction between experts on antiquity and on the Middle Ages evident in the thirteen contributions offers a guide to the future and illustrates close relationships in the evolving practice of cartography over the first millenium and a half of the Christian era."--Jacket
