History of Cartography

All 3 volumes of History of Cartography is now freely available to view online and download from the University of Chicago‘s website.

8399506431_f76ba3ca60_zThe first volume of the History of Cartography was published in 1987 and the three books that constitute Volume Two appeared over the following eleven years. In 1987 the worldwide web did not exist, and since 1998 book publishing has gone through a revolution in the production and dissemination of work. Although the large format and high quality image reproduction of the printed books (see right column) are still well-suited to the requirements for the publishing of maps, the online availability of material is a boon to scholars and map enthusiasts.

Chapters from the first 6six books can be downloaded as PDFs. Click on the links below to access the ebooks (volume three is in 2 parts, but they have the same cover)
