From the jacket: "The European Renaissance was as rich and fruitful an era for cartography as it was for the arts and sciences generally. Between 1450 and 1650, maps became a key component of daily and cultural life for literate Europeans who sought to understand the organization and nature of their world. Cartography in the European Renaissance explores the many ways in which maps were transformed from medieval rarities into dynamic and indispensible elements of early modern literature and science, art and technology, government and commerce, war and peace, empire and exploration." This volume covers cartography from Germany, the Low Countries, France, the British Isles, Scandinavia, East-Central Europe, and Russia. (Italy, Spain, Portugal, and general historical and cultural studies can be found in Part I).
