This fascinating book reviews the various cartographic misconceptions that shaped (and misshaped) America. It was written by Seymour I. Schwartz, the noted map expert and the Distinguished Alumni Professor of Surgery at the University of Rochester who is perhaps best known in the map collector community for his fine reference The Mapping of America, co-authored with Ralph E. Ehrenberg. The text is accompanied by 62 black & white illustrations, many of them reproductions of rare maps. Published by the University of Rochester Press. 233 pages. Soft illustrated covers.
A slightly bumped corner, otherwise fine.
