Maps and Exploration

Maps and Exploration
As explorers discovered new lands, the world’s borders seemed to expand and people developed a new interest in maps. This book documents the development of cartography—or mapmaking—and examines some of the controversies related to the world of exploration and the mapping of newly discovered or conquered lands.
