Mapping the World: Maps and Their History by Nathaniel Harris

Mapping the World is a stimulating account of the development of maps and the mapmakers, explorers, and patrons who made it possible. It features famous maps of all parts of the world and some of the famous names in cartography in more than 70 historical and modern maps, each with a lively description of its significance. This impressive volume features maps that show the location of paradise, route maps that guided pilgrims or crusaders to their prayers or their battles, maps that reveal the first attempts to define the borders between countries, maps that reflect Europeans growing knowledge of the rest of the world during the 16th and 17th centuries, and much more.
