This well-illustrated reference on miniature maps provides a bibliography and chronological guide to pre-1700 maps, a nice selection of maps printed after 1700, the variations of Ortelius' pocket atlas, and much more of interest. Little has been written about the subject and, as such, this guide is invaluable to collectors, libraries, and dealers. Hardbound in red buckram with illustrated dust jacket. 200 pp.


Condition: A

Contents like new and covers very good, although the spine is slightly bumped at bottom. Dust jacket has remnants of a label on front cover and minor shelf wear.
