See Description

The European Image and Mapping of America is a transcript of the first James Ford Bell Lecture given by R.A. Skelton (5.3" x 8"). Skelton used slides, none of which are illustrated here, but an extensive Notes section compensates somewhat. Paper wrappers, 28 pp., (5" x 8").

It outlines the development of British map making from the invention of the printing press in the fifteenth century to the end of the seventeenth century. Paper covers with title in red cartouche, 40 pp.

Over half in full color with extensive cartographic and historical references for each. Published by Fleet Publishers in 1982. Pictorial paper covers, 80pp. Contents: Title page; Introduction; Acknowledgements; Table of Maps and Sea Charts; text and illustrations. Written by Joe C. Armstrong.
