5.0 von 5 Sternen The Piri Reis Map of 1513 conspicuously missing, 28. August 2013
Rezension bezieht sich auf: On the Map: A Mind-Expanding Exploration of the Way the World Looks (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I know everything. O.k. I thought I did about maps. But just like someone having to tell you that you're shoe is untied, this presentation tells the obvious fact that maps hold a key to what makes us human; how did I over look that?

The hard cover come packed with plenty of monochrome maps and pictures of individuals related to maps. The forward by Dava Sobel set the tone for what is to come.

This book in describing maps takes us through all kinds of history but does not have the time to slowdown so the author Simon Garfield is counting on us already having a general knowledge about "42 life the universe and everything", or at least knowledge of people and history, so he can show how maps pull it all together. I feel that I just had an educational survey.

There is a small section on California as an island. I wonder if it was a misconception or a prediction. In any case the Dutch map form 1650 is a nice addition to the book.

Missing maps maybe a sequel:
Piri Reis Map of 1513 "a world map"
The Piri Reis Map of 1513 by Gregory C. McIntosh
California's Avocado Jungle
Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death
Map of Middle Earth
The Maps of Tolkien's Middle-earth by Brian Sibley
Topographic Maps
How to Teach With Topographic Maps by Dana Van Burgh

Makes you want to get out your National Geographic Maps.
You will never look at maps the same old way.
