5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful & Insightful. First Rate Quality. Truly "The Map Book" 18 décembre 2014
Par Virgil Stone - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am retired military (Army Special Forces) and I have a Masters in History (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and I am a map and cartography nut. I have thousands of maps and dozens of Atlas, map & cartography books. I expected a good book from the reviews and I am very happy to report that this is a great book. It is simply excellent and one of the best map books ever published.

As I've only had it for a few days, I am far from finished with it, but it is full of great maps and very insightful and scholarly information that is also fun, interesting, informative and easy to understand. My wife is not a map nut and see has been looking it over and reading it as well. The last two times I went to get it, she had it and was not thrilled to give it back to me. She told me that she thinks it is the best map book she has ever seen and see teaches geography & cartography (and many other subjects) to her Montessori students.

As far as the mechanics of the book itself, it is large (10x12x1.5), very heavy, at just under 4 pounds and the book is very well made. It has great quality paper, great ink (that does not smell like a chemical spill) and a first rate cover & binding.

My complements to the editor Peter Barber and the publisher Walker & Company. I now know why they call it "The Map Book".

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great coffee table book for the thinking person (at least the hardcover edition) 16 mai 2012
Par Jackal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you love historical maps, this is a good starting point. A couple of hundred maps are presented; one page for the map and one for the text. Other reviewers have described the content further so I will just focus on what I perceived as weaknesses:
- Better resolution should have been used for printing. At least the hard cover edition should have been printed so well that one could use a magnifying glass to get more information. Still the resolution is better than similar books printed in the 90s.
- A bit too many maps prior to 1700, around half the book.
- A very UK-centric approach for the last 3-400 years. The French were producing maps very early (not covered), the Germans had great maps with interesting typography 100 years ago (not covered), the Russians have produced very odd maps, like the one's given to soldiers (not covered), and the Japanese also have interesting maps (not covered).
- The text is short and descriptive but not insightful. The book The Image of the World: 20 Centuries of World Maps has a much more insightful text. So that is the book you should read to better understand world maps.

If you want a coffee table book for the thinking person, this is a great choice. Four stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent compilation. Unfortunately 31 janvier 2015
Par Charles Morrison - Publié sur Amazon.com

Excellent compilation. Unfortunately, the scale of the format does require using a magnifying glass when looking at the maps. The comments are cogent and at times, entertaining.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 History in Maps 9 septembre 2013
Par Penny - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book contains primarily historical maps with descriptions. The descriptions associated with each map added interesting information. Its contents are ordered chronologically, and one can trace the growing sophistication of geograpicial knowledge as one pages through the book
