Travel Maps
We use maps to get us from one place to another, yet maps for travelers and explorers vary widely. This volume presents the history of travel maps, from early lists of directions for pilgrims and sailors to modern-day systems used by aircraft and ships. It also takes a look at GPS route-finders in automobiles.
