The Genoese Cartographic Tradition and Christopher Columbus. A staggeringly beautiful, watermarked 1997 first edition, this comes with mostly full colour gatefold, fold-out maps, 31 in total, 23 in colour. The history of cartography is also that of methods of surveying and techniques of representation, ranging from rock carvings and rudimentary sketches, to the parchment manuscripts of medieval nautical charts, and the first engravings cut into wood, copper or stone, and later reproduced on paper in relatively limited quantities. Such are the cartographic documents reproduced in this entire series. Together with many other plates, volume XII in the series has 216pp.
