B) Things Maps Don't Tell Us: An Adventure into Map Interpretation by Armin K. Lobeck, published 1956, black & white, (7.8 x 11"). 59 pp. and 146 illustrations. The thesis is maps tell us a great deal, but there are some things maps don’t tell us. Professor Lobeck shows us how to look below the surface of the map to find and illustrate the land form as it was millions of years ago. He presents 72 two-page examples, each with a sketch and explanation of the surface as seen today and a sketch and explanation of the surface as seen much earlier, the latter being developed by inferences and conclusions drawn by studying the former. Hardbound in blue cloth boards with illustrative paper covers. Condition - pages are mostly clean with the boards and covers somewhat worn. (B)

C) Mapping the World: Maps and their History by Nathaniel Harris, published 2002, printed color, (9 x 11.5"). 304 pp. with approximately 300 illustrations, most in color related to maps and events from the period 600 B.C. to 2001 A.D. Hardbound in illustrative paper boards and cover. (A+)
