Ashley Baynton-Williams and Miles Baynton-Williams. New Worlds: Maps from the Age of Discovery.
London, 2006. Cloth.
Gathered from five centuries of exploration and presented in chronological order, this sumptuous book reproduces over 120 maps that record the adventures and discoveries - as well as fantasies and outright lies - of explorers, merchants, travelers and cartographers. Taken together, they chart the European discovery of the world as science, legend, politics and art were blended together by the cartographer's art.
